How To Create Your Assessment Folio in Evernote

Install the Webclipper

The webclipper enables you to capture via any browser on a PC or Mac the content of webpages, which you can then modify and annotate. Where the original website content is changed or removed, your web clip will remain.

If you have been asked to collect resources for your folio, you may find this a very easy way to do so.

Download and install Webclipper

1.      Open a browser (Firefox or Chrome is recommended).

2.      Go to

3.      At the download tab, choose the browser you will be downloading Webclipper with.

4.      Your download should start immediately.

5.      Follow the prompts to install.

6.      The Evernote elephant icon should be visible in the top right-hand corner of your browser. (See Image 1.1)

Capture a webclip

Webclipper allows you to capture: articles, simplified articles, full pages, bookmarks or screenshots from your browser.
