I. History

-Questions to consider: How was the application developed? How does the application work? Are there any ways to use this application alongside others?


Alex- It allows individuals to create, manage, and keep track of tasks within a team or as an individual.

Alex- In reddynote you can create lists of tasks that need to be completed and keep track of their progress. There are three folders to help keep track of progress. These are 'Today', 'Next', and 'Postponed'. You can move tasks within these folders to help you prioritize them.

Spencer - In the ReddyNote workspace, when you create a new task, you may assign a tag to it.  All tags are listed on the right of the screen, and the user may select a specific tab from here to view only tasks that have this tag.

Spencer - Regarding tags, you may also create a separate tab.  Tabs allow you to group and view several chosen tags together.  When a tab is selected, ReddyNote only displays tasks who have the specific tag for that tab on your screen.

Kameron- The 'Quick-entry' mode allows you to conveniently stow away tasks that you may not have to deal with right away. This could be a good tool when a spontaneous idea/task comes to mind and you're not quite sure when you will be able to get to it.

Kameron- While using the 'Quick-entry' mode, you are able to create specific tabs in different folders; essentially organizing your spontaneous, less-important ideas or tasks.

Kameron- The 'Inbox' of each folder contains all of your tasks for a given tab. All of these tasks can be "dismissed," "delegated," or "accomplished" through ReddyNote.

Alex- To sign up click the "Sign Up" tab at the top of the home page or the "Sign up now" button at the bottom of the page. Fill out the information: what is your name? What is your email address? and the security check. You will then see a page that directs you to check your email account. The email gives you a link to follow. A new page will pop up from ReddyNote asking for a password and for you to agree to the terms of service and privacy policy. Now you can go in and begin creating your tasks!

Alex- To use ReddyNote you do not have to download anything or install anything extra to your computer. It is all done from the browser.

Alex- To add a new tab click on settings in the top right hand corner. Then under the "tasks" category click "tabs". Here you can add tabs, edit tabs, or remove tabs. If you click on "automatic" under the "tasks" category, you can click the boxes that you want. Your choices are "Automatically move tasks, which are due today, to folder "Today"." "Tasks which are due soon, should be automatically moved to the "Next" folder days before falling due" (you can set the number of days) and "completed tasks should be automatically moved to the "Archive" folder the next day".

Alex- The initial idea of ReddyNote was born in 2008 by Andres Neuhaus and Jorg Menneken(developers, company founders, and managing directors). At the beginning of February 2010 the first beta version was released.

III. Real World Application

-This section will include 3 Lesson Plans for each Elementary, Secondary, and Post Secondary levels. One out of the three needs to be STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) related. 

-An additional section under this heading will provide information about how this application can be used in a Business/Industry Setting.


Alex- ReddyNote can be used in the business world to help manage group tasks. Each individual can get on and make changes to the lists/ tasks. They can also make comments and notes about specific things.

Alex- It can help employees keep track of the lists of tasks their boss has given them to do. It helps employees stay focused, on task, and be more efficient with their time.

Spencer - Students may also use ReddyNote to keep track of upcoming assignments or events.  For example, I've created a school tab that contains all my tags pertaining to my courses.

Kristina- When using ReddyNote as a business employee, you can easily see when other employees have completed a task so that no time is wasted and the group can move on to the next task.

Kristina- Students may use ReddyNote not only for school related work, but also include daily tasks outside of their schoolwork which can be easily organized through the use of the tabs.

Lauren-ReddyNote can also be used by college students for large scale projects. Often times large projects require multiple parts, for example I have a twelve page paper in one of my classes that requires students to research several different aspects of political policy. ReddyNote helps students to stay on track, to keep their thoughts and ideas organized, therefore they can begin to find relationships and ways to put their work together.

Lauren-Students could use ReddyNote during group projects. Often times in college most group work is done outside the classroom, ReddyNote provides a way for students to work together easily. Each member can get on and see what work needs to be done, making sure that everything is completed on time and given the proper amount of attention.

IV. Demonstration of Educational Value

Lauren-Teachers can use it when developing lesson plans for a specific unit or subject matter. ReddyNote helps to keep them on track by lining out their objectives of what they want students to learn.
