Say hello to Workbooks – a central scratchpad for student notes and annotations, promoting more effective and impactful study behaviours.
With Workbooks at their fingertips, students using the Kortext Arcturus platform to read and study can easily collate their digital annotations into categories and even sub-folders such as modules, topics or Workbooks containing research for individual essays.
Using the Workbooks feature, students can even make and organise new notes into their Workbooks, helping them to plan assignments effectively and reflect back, providing an invaluable revision tool when it comes to exam season.
In another new addition to the Kortext Arcturus platform, our notes feature now contains a rich text editor, including the ability to use bold, underline, and italics as well as include links to web pages, images and videos to make more comprehensive, richer and joined up study notes.
Want to foster a sense of community and inspire collaborative working? Sharing Workbooks or individual notes with other Kortext Arcturus users is easy through our handy ‘Groups’ tool.
Remember – students and academics can set up and join Kortext study groups where they can share ideas, provide feedback and collaborate on joint projects – all centered around their eTextbooks.
