About This Class
Join data designer and doodler Catherine Madden for a one hour class demonstrating techniques for creatively and visually summarizing content in a way that helps you process and retain the information. If you have been in a classroom, on a conference call, or watched a TED talk that has interesting content, but you can’t seem to remember the key points, visual note taking (also known as sketchnoting) can open up your mind in new and exciting ways.
This class doesn't require any special materials, but we do walk through ways to create digital sketchnotes using the Paper app by FiftyThree for iPad.
For those of you looking for some of the articles, websites, or books I reference in the class, you can find them here!
Here is the digital sketchnote I reference briefly in the intro section:
- How Doodling Can Help You Get Ahead at Work
- Taking Notes: Is The Pen Still Mightier Than the Keyboard?
- The Power of Doodling: How Doodles Can Lead to Great Ideas
- Making Learning Visible: Doodling Helps Memories Stick
- Say It With Stick Figures: Your Crude Drawings Are More Effective Than PowerPoint

Clear instruction and great examples. This course is really easy to follow. I'm looking forward to completing the project and continuing to practice taking sketchnotes!
I'm a designer, doodler, and digital artist. I spent the past several years consulting for big companies, helping them think through how to visualize data and information in meaningful ways. Now I'm on a mission to get everybody to think visually and untap their creative talents.
