Say hello to the new Seminar and Lecture Notes Plugin

The Seminar Notes Plugin allows users to take and save personal notes on your seminar, lecture, and sermon notes. You can even embed images and videos, and include links to PDFs, webpages, other resources, and more.

What are some ways that you can use the Seminar Notes Plugin?

The Seminar Notes Plugin was made for Education, Conference, and Church apps in mind, but as with all of our plugins, a little creativity can make them applicable to any industry! Technically, if you have a presentation that you’d like your viewers to take notes on, this would be super helpful (such as for a company meeting).

Who is this for?

Tutors, lecturers, professors, teachers, conference speakers, pastors, and all presentation givers from pretty much any industry.

What do I put in the Content Section?

This could include every bit of information in your seminar or it could be a quick glance at your seminar, thus putting the focus on the note-taking aspect of the plugin instead

Some uses for this section can be, but are not limited to:

  • Summary of your seminar
  • Bullet-pointed summary of your lecture
  • Transcription of your speech
  • Some information about the seminar plus a bio
  • Important questions and thoughts to keep in mind during the seminar
  • Passage that the sermon is based on

What do I put in the Links/Actions Section?

Think of this section as a having a “secondary resource” purpose. You can add presentations, worksheets, homework, PDF files, websites, additional resources, social media, sources, and audio and video recordings of the seminar.

With our new Deep Linking feature, you can also use this section to link to other parts of your app. For example, if you already have your resources available in your app via a Webview, Media Center, YouTube, Vimeo or whatever other Plugin, then you can simply add it in by clicking on Add Link/Action, Link to App Content, then selecting the Plugin you’d like to link to.

How can my users use the Seminar and Lecture Notes Plugin?
