A notebook is a collection of information about a college of interest. A student can create and keep a notebook for each college they visit and add photos and notes about that school. Take pictures of the various dorm rooms and off-campus housing as well as a campus map. Add clubs that may be of interest and activities that the school offers. Keep this information in your SCOIR notebook for quick access when needed, or for later review and comparison with other school choices.
To start a Notebook:
1. Navigate to 'My Colleges' tab. Select a favorite college by clicking on the College name. Additions to the notebook can be made two ways: 1. by adding an existing Wall item or 2. by uploading a personal note or photo.
1. Adding an existing Wall item
Navigating to the 'Wall' tab allows the Student to Pin any of the wall items by clicking on the 'Pin' button.
Clicking Pin opens up a dialog box. Add to My College Notebook will automatically be selected with a blue check box. Clicking 'Save' will add this to your Notebook for that College. In addition, this item can be added to the Ideaboard of your choice by selecting that in the drop down box.
2. Uploading a personal note or photo
Follow the same steps as above by navigating to a College of your choice. In the upper right corner, a camera and letter icon can be found.
Also, navigating to your Profile | Notebooks and opening any notebook will expose a photo and text icon.
To upload a photo, select the camera icon, and for text, select the letter icon. After a photo/text is uploaded, a confirmation popup will appear, confirming it was added to your notebook.
