In this LibGuide, we will be talking about Android devices only. The reason for this is that the BCMP students have been given Samsung tablets.
You will need WiFi to be able to download apps, and access the electronic resources, but you can take notes, write up reports and assignments, and read downloads when you do not have WiFi.
There are numerous apps available free of charge, and Evernote is one of the most popular tools for both organisation and note - taking. It is free of charge.
