I AM TRYING to validate a long-standing relationship I've had with Google Keep because I want to be able to dictate notes and have them appear on my calendars. This has become more important now that my calendar rotates into view on our Amazon Echo Show.
I'm trying to lock Google Keep into my daily workflow because I think it offers the lowest demands on my laptop, mobile phone, and tablet. It's simply text (or tick-off lists) that I can pin on my devices. I could go all-in with Teams or Slack, adding services that offer exceptionally rich tracking of tasks, but I need a simple note-taking tool that offers me audio inputs and Keep's simple and elegant functionality has served me well.
With students, I've discovered simple and functional is better than expansive and complex. I need to know we can share a list of things to do, tick them off when they're done, and then share the feeling that we finished something on time.
As long as a colleague or a student has a Gmail address, they can collaborate with the listings I put into Google Keep.
Let me know if your note-taking system is faster and less expensive.
