So what is it about Microsoft OneNote that is so great? Where do I start... One Note can gather your notes, drawings, and audio commentaries and even share them with other users of Microsoft OneNote over the Internet. If your like me and lack of organization has held you back, you have met your match with OneNote. Never be left disorganized, scrabbling to find those important note as SO much more.
See information in Microsoft OneNote is saved in 'Pages', which are organized into Notebooks. You can think of it as your own personal tabbed three ringed binder, placed online with the ability to share your info. However unlike a traditional binder, OneNote can be used directly for making/taking notes, and also to gather material obtained from other applications. With OneNotes student planner you can capture and organizing class research, notes, and ideas! Come study time, it’ll be easy to search your notes for a word, tag, or date.
Microsoft OneNote is not just for the student, you can organize just about anything in OneNote. As a blogger, I am learning to organize and schedule in OneNote. I tend to get scattered very easy and previously kept my notes, posting dates, contacts in a paper notebook and spreadsheets. Of course I have been known to sit down with a spreadsheet for an hour and not hit save - with OneNote your sessions are saved automatically!
