Leverage the power of an all-in-one tool.
Merge your sketchnoting skills with the unique capabilities of a digital note-taking device to amplify your learning, problem-solving, and storytelling efforts.
Throughout May and June of 2023 I'll be releasing new video lessons for the first three units of this course (see dates below) and I'll also be hosting live workshops to discuss those topics.
Unit 1: Compass
Get oriented with this course and identify your personal goals.
Unit 2: Tools
Explore your hardware and software options and decide on starting tools.
Unit 3: Techniques
Experiment with the available features inside your note-taking app.
Unit 4: Purpose
Explore the three primary uses of sketchnoting through the digital lens.
Unit 5: Process
Bring it all together into a digital sketchnoting process that meets your needs and can grow with you.
As a final project for this course, I'll encourage you to walk us through a sketchnote you created while pointing out the tools you use and how you use them, like I do in this video about the app Concepts:
I'm excited to see your work from those lessons and discuss any questions that come up in a series of live workshops! Those will take place a week after each set of lessons is released. Here are the dates for those events:
Those events will take place on Zoom, will start at 9:00am Pacific Time, and will run for about 90 minutes. I'll post the replay the following day.
What Students are Saying
Here's what students had to say about the first version of this course:
Awesome course. Great introduction to so many varying digital tools. Doug’s a great instructor. You’ll love it.
Doug brings a very unique perspective while taking us through this sketchnoting course. He is a great teacher. This course is an excellent example of an agile way of teaching – the time of the course was fixed but the scope absolutely kept on evolving as we started getting deeper into digital sketchnoting. One of the best teachers to learn such wonderful knowledge. Thanks Doug.
Doug has created a global classroom where participants cheer your work, give you new ideas and useful feedback. The environment encourages you to just go ahead with your journey – your direction is the right one for you, and the community salutes you on the way. It’s been really fun.
As a teacher who works with students who learn in many different ways, including many visual learners, digital sketchnoting is a way to help students, especially these days where remote learning is a possibility for all or some of the school year. These students who say they learn best writing or drawing with pencil and paper can transfer these skills to technology. And as a teacher I can put some difficult concepts in a format that some students will understand better than just in writing. And I can do it remotely and online if necessary. I’m glad I took this course and jumped way out of my comfort zone to learn a new way to teach and reach all students.
