Microsoft OneNote

Half or full day | Online or in person

Microsoft OneNote brings together all of your paper notebook needs into an application that manages infinite pages of infinitely sized paper, bringing together text and drawings with multimedia and files from your digital world. OneNote then goes further and offers powerful tools for organising and navigating your notes, integrating with Microsoft Outlook for todo lists, PowerPoint and Word for annotating documents and more. Notes can be linked to web pages, documents and even other notes, and everything can be searched - including the text in images.

This course covers just about every feature of OneNote that you will ever needs, and includes discussion about how to use those features in your job and life to keep things organised in one place.

What's Covered

The OneNote courses open with a short discussion on what OneNote can be used for, including examples from in and out of workplaces. The trainees will be encouraged to think about how OneNote can be of use to them, in or out of work, and to allow the training to focus on things they can introduce to their daily lives.

Both the half day and full day version of the course cover all major features of OneNote, including:

  • Create and open OneNote notebooks
  • OneNote for your computer, mobile or on the web
  • The structure of a notebook: Sections, Groups and Pages
  • Quick Notes and Docked Notes
  • Customise your notebooks
  • Adding and laying out text
  • To-Do Lists and Tags
  • Multimedia: Images and drawing
  • Working with audio and video
  • Screen clippings and content from other apps
  • Linking between notebooks and other applications
  • Finding content
  • Sharing notebooks

The half day course offers a tour of the features with demonstrations and a chance to try things out. The full day version spends more time on each feature, with activities designed to explore real use cases for you and your team to get the most out of OneNote for productivity and collaboration.
This course requires trainees have access to OneNote during the course, at most shared with one other person.
