What is Milanote?

Whether you're planning an event, collecting research, or just trying to get your thoughts in order, Milanote offers a user-friendly and visually appealing interface to do so. Create a board and add various elements including notes, images, links, to-do lists, and PDFs. Milanote has over 100 professional templates, from moodboards to project plans and creative briefs to help you organize. It's an excellent tool for brainstorming and collaborative exercises.  

Why Use It?

For the Learner:

  • It can help organize thoughts and ideas for visual learners
  • The boards can be shared, which makes this a great tool to use when working on a group project.
