Keeping track of your life is definitely made easier with a planner or bullet journal. With the ease in which we travel around with smart phones, tablets, and laptops these days, digital planners and journals help decrease the amount of weight added to your bag or purse.
These digital "notebooks" are easy to download again and again, making them a fantastic renewable resource that you only need to purchase once.
As a college instructor and graduate student, I'm writing down notes, deadlines, reminders, plans, and more constantly. Keeping them in one easy-to-navigate PDF makes finding the information I need fast and simple.
If you're looking for the same convenience in your life, then this course is for you.
Not sure how to use a digital bullet journal? This course includes a series of nine video tutorials to help you customize the journal to meet your exact needs.
Not teaching yet or in the future? While I was inspired by my teaching experience when designing the 37 templates that are included in the journal and recording the video tutorials, only 2 templates are specifically designed only with teaching in mind. The rest are for anyone who has a flexible schedule.
-> Taking classes that only meet two days a week? Use any of the "meet two days a week" templates.
-> Working on your side hustle a little bit each week day? Use either of the "meet five days a week" templates.
-> Want to use an already-made habit tracker? The various "4 week unit," "8 week schedule," and "attendance sheet" templates can be used to track all kinds of information.
With six hyperlinked sections built into the journal, you can keep track of up to any six categories of notes in one PDF. I focus mainly on teaching-related examples in the video tutorials, but those examples are just a starting point to build off of.
Worried about having to scroll through hundreds of pages to find the right point in your 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.
Remember, you can download the journal PDF over and over again, so there's no limit to the amount of information you can keep track of when using the journal that comes with this course.
What will you learn in this course?
- How to customize the tabs for each of the six, built-in sections of your digital bullet 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 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 when your next paper or lab report is due.
-> No more buying a new bullet journal after you run out of pages again and again (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 and/or academia-related notes.
*Want to see what the journal and 30+ templates look like before you buy? Check out the free preview video linked below ("A Look Inside Your Journal").*
Too excited to wait for the video to see what’s inside? Here are three of the thirty-seven templates for a quick peek.
Make your planning and note-taking life easier on yourself by keeping all your notes, tasks, ideas, etc. in one digital bullet journal.
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.
