"The Famous Cornell Note-Taking System for the 21st Century"
In our current nationwide crisis situation, many of us are concerned about sending our children into face-to-face classroom settings in school. Many school children are concerned too. We just don't know enough about this crisis to know what effects it may have on young people, and if those effects translate to the parents, aunts, uncles, siblings, or grandparents
This is why many of us are electing to keep our children home and to have them attend class online rather than in person. Many students themselves are making similar decisions. That makes having the ability to take effective, efficient, and productive notes in every class so very important, so they can compensate for not being there in person. We and our children don't just want to succeed, we want them to excel in their education. And we want to do everything in our power to help them achieve that, while keeping them safe in perilous times.
That's where 'The New Cornell Notes' comes in. Cornell Notes has been recognized worldwide as the most effective study tool available. Originally developed as a paper-and-pencil method for taking and reviewing notes. The New Cornell Notes bring this tried-and-true methodlogy into the 21st Century. Using the electronic automation of the iPad, students can create a summary of the notes they're about to take, then enter "Cues" under which they start taking notes for a particular lecture or discussion topic. As the lecture or discussion moves on, the student adds more "Cues" as appropriate for each lecture discussion section. After the class is over, students can review their notes, modify their related "Cues" and "Summary", and began the process of studying by trying to recall the substance of each "Cue" without having the review the actual notes.
Now more than ever, with home schooling / distance learning becoming increasingly important and often necessary, having a highly efficient and highly effective note-taking system at a student's disposal insures they can maximize their learning experience and their subsequent grades.

Not worth $9.99 - not even worth $0.99!
The Pros: It downloaded and opened. That’s it.
1. I can’t change the color of the font. This is a huge problem for me - especially since I work with my iPad in dark mode most of the time. Black on black… doesn’t show up.
2. I’m trying to use my pen with it - again, black on black. I can’t see what it’s writing or if it’s writing correctly.
3. It touts the Cornell system, but you have a clean blank screen to write on. No tutorial screen or instructions or links to a help page - nothing. If you’re used to using the Cornell system - PLEASE, save your money and go with something else.
I really hoped this would make me more productive and help me retain more of my material for my college courses (I have gone back to school after a long break from my first time in school. I’m looking for any and all tools to make the time I’m spending as productive and efficient as possible.) This was not a winning tool.
At the very least, there should’ve been a trial period. I would’ve known (I did know) within the first 5 minutes this was not going to work for me. Alas, no return and no refund.
