Hello everyone, Does any one use Microsoft OneNote application with their students? OneNote is on all our students systems and it is used intensively for note taking and other purposes in different programs. I believe that a professor in one of programs who uses a tablet said you can not find a student with a pen anymore, they are all taking their notes on OneNote. The issue we are having is, the first year and new students are not familiar with the product and we need to provide them with some training material. Does anyone have any trailing material for OneNote that we can use or build on? Best regards, Reem I.

Good afternoon Reem,


Here is a video that give a fairly comprehensive overview of the educational use of OneNote.


There is a OneNote blog ( which you might find useful.


There is a site called the “Partners in Learning Network” which does require minimal registration but offers lots of educational examples\tutorials provided by educators themselves (screen shot below).


Finally, I frequently do demonstrations on OneNote so if you cannot find what you need, please feel free to reach out to me and I will see if I can locate, or build, the learning object.
