Paperless Student: My Typical Class Workflow

My Classroom Desk Setup

I’ve been having this subject for a week now, so I know exactly what to bring for my classes. I have my computer glasses, iPad with the Apple Pencil charging. I also have two pens and a piece of paper for the small exercises we have to submit during the class.

The Class

The teacher came in and gave us some additional study material. So I scanned it into my iPad with Scanner Pro to turn it into a PDF file. Scanner Pro can automatically detect the document I am scanning and when it does, it automatically snaps the photo.

I can edit each scan to remove my desk that is spilling into the frames to get the perfect scans of the notes. Since I am in the middle of a class, I will perfect them a bit later.

The next part of my class session is recording the class in Notability. My rough notes are in my PDF reader: LiquidText. Occasionally, the professor asks us to solve a task in our notebooks. I do that on my iPad (in Notability) and she checks it from there.

Any thoughts? Do tell, do tell!
