It is also an online tool, so you can use it anywhere you have an internet connection, and on any computer that you have access to.

The good thing about VideoNotes is that it is integrated into Google Drive which means that students will be able to save their notes directly to their Drive account and access, edit, and work on them anytime they want. All the notes are time-stamped.
