is always good for the soul, to help you feel in control and on top of things! How about using Evernote
to keep all your notes together and Google Calendar
to keep track of your timetable? Head to our resources page
and click the 'organisation'
tag for more tools and ideas!
Maintaining a sense of Calm when life gets a bit more hectic is important! Here are some tips to support your sense of wellbeing or you can simply head over to our resources and select the tags mindfulness or wellbeing for some tools to keep you centred!
Notetaking is a pretty essential part of uni life! Maybe give Dance Mat Typing a go (a touch typing tool), to get those notes down quickly and accurately! Or perhaps you want a cloud based note taking and storage system- maybe try Google Docs with Google Drive!
Swotting up for the next assignment might involve a lot of reading...you could use a scanner app to capture pages from the 'reference only' book in the library. Or you could use a text-to-speech programme (eg. Claro Read) to listen to it instead, or adjust the colours of the background/text in webpages using Care your Eyes.
