A Quick Guide to OneNote

Over the last few months I have come to appreciate all of the things that OneNote does that my trusty old Google Keep can't do. Whenever a product has as many features layered into it as OneNote does, it can take some time to understand how all of those features work individually and can work together. If  you're a devoted Google Keep or Evernote user who has never tried OneNote, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

Mircosoft has excellent guides to help you start using OneNote. Take a look at this Sway page for a quick overview of how to use OneNote. For a more detailed guidance, take a look at these pages that include detailed step-by-step directions.

These OneNote tutorials are part of a larger collection of MS Office quick start guides that are available to view and or download right here.

One of my favorite uses of OneNote is Tom Grissom's Notestreaming technique. It's a great concept that, when applied correctly, could be very helpful in providing students with video content to supplement course instruction. Watch Tom's video as embedded below or jump to his OneNote notebook of resources which includes this introductory video.
