Get Organized—The Paperless Version

With school around the corner, it’s a great time to get yourself organized. Put down that pen and paper—we searched for online alternatives to help you out this school year.

  • Moving back and forth between computers at work, home and school can be overwhelming. Set up a LogMeIn account to make sure you can always access your primary computer.
  • Tired of slapping sticky pads on your computer screen? Visit Squareleaf for a cheaper choice.
  • Managing social media accounts—for yourself or for work? Check out HootSuite to manage it all in one place.
  • At some point in the semester, you’ll probably plan on eating. At My Meal Planner, Betty Crocker is on your side.
  • What did you get Aunt Velda from Florida for her birthday in September again? Keep track at Amazon Gift Organizer.
  • Ever call yourself and leave a “note to self” voicemail? Schedule calls or texts with Oh Don’t Forget.
  • If you plan on using multiple computers, getting a Dropbox is a must. The free version is analogous to a flash drive that automatically updates every time you save a document to your hard drive.
  • Set your goals and use your online support community at 43Things. Unlike a to-do list, it focuses on larger goals.
  • Taking notes? Making complex lists or starting up project management? Choose between competitors Evernote and Springpad.
  • Set up your homepage with Feedly to put your favorite daily reads in one place.
  • Whether you’re dreaming up the next big business or simply planning the corporate retreat, Mindomo offers free mind-mapping to get your creative juices flowing.
  • Big research paper coming up? Keep it together with Zotero.
  • Personal finance can be a challenge during college years. Give LearnVest a spin for meeting your financial needs.
  • If, at the end of the day, all you wanted was a stellar to-do list, look no further: Remember the Milk will get the job done.

The AU MBA program is a traditional MBA program designed for the working professional. Classes meet in the evening and mostly one night each week. Most students complete the program in less than 23 months. The MBA program is offered on the Anderson campus and in several locations in the Indianapolis area. The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) nationally accredits the Anderson University MBA program, and Anderson University is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
