Everything You Need to Know to Customize Your New Journal

Lesson planning and keeping track of your various teaching-related notes can involve a lot of different digital folders and files. Rather than creating a complex system to plan out your courses and take notes on your students' progress, a digital journal like the one included in this course allows you to easily navigate through all your plans and ideas in one PDF.

With six hyperlinked sections built into the journal, you can keep track of up to six courses in one PDF.

Worried about having to scroll through hundreds of pages to find the right point in your lesson plans or semester notes?

-> Getting to the start of each section is as easy as the press of one hyperlinked tab, available at the bottom of each journal page.

Not enough versatility for you?

-> Use the "bookmark" function available in most annotator apps and you can make the journal even easier to navigate. I show you how in this course.

Even if you decide to use the usual folder tree on your laptop, this journal can provide you with a quick overview of your courses while on-the-go. If you already carry an iPad or tablet with you, your teaching journal can always be accessible to you without having to constantly remember to carry another notebook in your bag.

The journal can also make for a wonderful digital memory book of every semester you teach, as you can download the PDF over and over again, semester after semester.

What will you learn in this course?

  • How to customize the tabs for each of the six, built-in sections of your digital journal
  • How to customize each section of your journal via the 37 available templates included
  • How to customize your journal cover
  • How to create digital "stickers" for decorating your journal
  • How to use the templates in creative ways (for meal planning, habit tracking, and more)
  • How to fill out the journal pages once you've added them to each section
  • How to use the basic tools in Good Notes 4 (and the basics of the free apps Zoom Notes Lite and Notes Writer)
  • What to do if you accidentally delete one of the built-in hyperlinked pages

What templates are included in the journal? Take a look:


By the end of this course, you'll know all you need to in order to customize your digital teaching journal into more than just a one-time journaling experience.

-> No more scrambling to find that long-lost sticky note with your students' requested appointment times listed out.

-> No more trying to remember what you named that file with your ideas for a new class activity.

-> No more buying a new teaching journal each semester (your wallet will thank you, even if your notebook collection starts feeling lonely).

As the journal is a customizable PDF with over 30+ templates, you'll find that it can be used in even more ways than just keeping track of your teaching-related ideas, plans, and goals.

Make your teaching life easier on yourself by having your teaching ideas, notes, and plans all in one, easy-to-navigate PDF.

Important Note: The full function of this journal is only available via the use of an annotator app. There are plenty of free and paid apps that can be used. My preference is Good Notes 4, available in the Apple App store for $7.99. That's the application I use throughout this course. While not yet available for Android users, annotation apps are definitely plentiful in any app store. Just find one with hyperlink functionality available, like Xodo. I include basic tutorials for the free apps Zoom Notes Lite and Notes Writer in this course, so you'll be able to customize each section of your journal on these free apps without having to go searching online. If you already use a PDF annotator app, just check to see if hyperlinks work when clicked on in a PDF.
