💡 Outcome


Learn the nuts and bolts of Roam Research's powerful features.

Discover how those features can work together to fundamentally change the way you think and work.

Develop your own unique Roam Research workflows.


Roam Research is a note-taking tool for networked thought. It's packed full of features that turn chaos into insight.

There are so many features, with so much power, that it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Are you missing out by not using some features? Are you using Roam the "right" way?

In this course, you will:

  1. Learn the nuts & bolts of Roam Research's powerful features.
  2. Recognize how to use those features in your own unique workflows.

Each course module will introduce and explain a few features, demonstrate how they work together, and prompt you to consider how they could facilitate your life and work.

Over the full course, this last component will become your capstone project: developing the Roam workflow that suits you.

You can get 1-on-1 help with your Roam challenges during Live Capstone Masterclasses.

Plus, we'll have a private community where you can get feedback from me and your fellow Roaman Roadsters.
