What is Milanote?

Milanote is an easy to use digital environment to organize creative work. Milanote operates through “boards." Objects—text-notes, images, links with image previews, or file embeds—can easily be added anywhere on a virtual board.

Why Use It?

For the Learner:

  • It can help organize thoughts and ideas for visual learners
  • The boards can be shared and collaborated on which makes this a great tool to use when working on a group project.
  • These boards can be used for more than an organization tool, students can create a project on the board and export the finished product as a pdf

For the Instructor:

  • Provide a tool to support visual learners
  • Introduce a virtual collaborative tool for projects
  • Encourage different routes to complete a project
