Google Keep Now Works Offline In Chrome

In March Google launched a new notebook service called Keep. When it launched Keep was only available as an Android app and as a Google Drive service. Today, Google released a Chrome Web App for Keep. As a Chrome Web App Keep can be used even when you're offline. Like the other versions of Keep your notes can include text, links, and images. Notes can be rearranged and or deleted from your account at drive.google.com/keep Learn more about Keep in the short video below.


Applications for Education
If your students use Chromebooks or just use Chrome on a regular basis, Keep could be a good service for them to use record short notes while they're offline. At this point I'm thinking of it as a sticky note service for students who use Chromebooks on a regular basis.
