But, technology can help when it comes to saving those notes and easily sharing them with classmates. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on high-tech notebook solutions to start the school year off right.

[MUSIC] Moleskin, the beloved premium notebook brand has teamed up with Evernote to create a digital backup for your hand written notes. Take your notes as you normally would in the Moleskin notebooks, tag the pages with stickers to help you sort and file the pages, and then use iPhone and Android compatible Evernote app to take a photo of the page. It will be instantly uploaded to your Evernote account. So you can scroll through the pages online. Share the and save them for later. Prices start at $25. Mod notebooks deliver a similar end product but the process to get there is different. Fill the pages of a $29 Mod notebook and then send it off in a provided prepaid envelope back to Mod. Within five days they will digitize every single page and house them in the Mod app. From there, you can transfer the digital pages to another service of your preference.
