Store Kindle Notes in Evernote?
When will Kindle notes integrate with the cloud?
I love my Kindle. I equally love my Evernote account. As an educator, both of these tools provide students with multiple learning opportunities. With the Kindle, the obvious advantage is being able to store digital textbooks. With Evernote, students can store, access, and share their notes on the cloud among multiple platforms – cell phones, laptops, PCS, etc.
What I hope we see soon is the ability to share our Kindle notes within the Evernote software. Yes, it is possible to tweet your Kindle highlights, but this is a poor option for storing, organizing, and purposefully directing notes to other students.
Evernote has the ability to share notebooks amongst different users. Imagine the collaborative learning opportunities that students would have. Instead of being confined to the thoughts and notes within their classroom, students would be able to access relevant resources from students and teachers within that content area all over their state (since that’s the level where standards are typically adopted).
Hobbyists and programming enthusiasts are beginning to develop scripts that allow users to strip Kindle notes from kindle.amazon.com, and then seamlessly transfer these notes into their Evernote account. An individual at technosavvy.org has released a script allowing individuals to extract notes from their Kindle in the kindle.amazon.com format. However, at the time of this posting, this script is in beta stages and is only available for Macs. You can read more about this cool little script here.
Amazon and Evernote, are you listening? Just something to consider.
EDIT: I have a posted a guide describing how to sync your Kindle notes with Evernote. You may access the guide by following this link.
