Remember The Milk

The resource for today is called Remember The Milk.

What is Remember The Milk?
Remember The Milk is a virtual to-do list and reminder website. It's an online tool that can be accessed from anywhere, including your mobile device. 

Is it free?
Remember The Milk is free for all users. There is an upgraded account for $25.00, but for the use of the classroom, you would only need the free version.

What will Remember The Milk bring to your classroom?
This product can prove to be beneficial in all different grades throughout the education system. From using it in the Kindergarten classroom to set up steps for students to follow when doing a project to using it in 4th grade classrooms to help remind parents of field trips to a college student reminding themselves of the work that is due by the end of the week. This tool brings an easier way to create to do lists at the touch of a finger or by the click of a mouse.

How do I use Remember The Milk?
Below, I will show you the steps of using Remember The Milk.

Here's the dashboard for my Remember the Milk. You have many different areas to sort your tasks: inbox, personal, study, work, and sent. Or, you can choose to view all at the same time. Over to the right, you can view your tasks on a calendar or even print your tasks. This might be nice to physically cross out events and tasks that you have completed.

Step 1: Type in your task on the add a new task bar. Hit enter to add the task to your dashboard.

Step 2: Add your details. Choose your due date, whether or not the event should repeat, time estimated to complete event, tags, location, and the URL for event. Remember The Milk also tells you how many times you've postponed your event, who you've shared it with, and the amount of notes you have on each event. And that's it! You now have a task created.

When you change something, this is what comes up so that way you can undo your changes if you so choose.

This is your overview up close where you can print, look at your iCal, or do an RSS feed.
