Learning the Old Fashioned Way

I started the online training for the Canadian CFP designation.  I don't have the printed material, but I do have access to the course material through the website.  There is a deadline at the end of February to turn in some assignments, so I need to get to work.

Fired up the browser, opened the course, went through the slides, took notes in a notebook, did the online quizzes.

Then it occurred to me that taking notes in cursive writing in a notebook is probably not the way higher learning is done anymore.  I should probably be taking notes on a computer or a tablet, storing the notes in the "cloud", maybe doing some social networking with my fellow students, take some ADHD drugs to improve my concentration, and be sending cheat notes with Snapchat.

Taking notes with a pen in a three ring binder is so old-fashioned.
