Zoho Notebook Adds an Import Option

After last week's announcement that Google is shutting down Google Notebook people on Twitter and elsewhere started talking about using Zoho Notebook as a replacement. In response to those conversations I put together a short screencast about moving the contents of Google Notebook into Zoho Notebook. The process I shared is less than perfect, but it works.

Today, Zoho announced the launch of an official import from Google Notebook option for Zoho Notebook users. I gave it a try just a few minutes ago and it worked well. In order to use the import option you do have to install the new Zoho Notebook plug-in for Firefox. The new Zoho Notebook plug-in is much much better than the old plug-in. The new plug-in operates almost identically to Google Notebook plug-in. Click here to read all of the detail about the new Zoho Notebook options including directions for using the new features.

Applications for Education
These new features from Zoho are perfect for teachers that were scrambling to find Google Notebook replacements for themselves or for their students.

For other ideas about Google Notebook replacements please see the comments posted in response to last week's Google Notebook shut-down announcement.
