While Microsoft is doing a great job of providing OneNote resources for teachers at http://onenoteforteachers.com, I find that Microsoft’s efforts are still pretty Windows/PC-centric. In an effort to “translate” the process of creating a OneNote Class Notebook to the Mac realm, I’ve posted a new YouTube series just for Mac-wielding students and teachers.
Over the past year or so, I am impressed more and more by Microsoft’s efforts to make Office 365 more usable in the classroom. Microsoft’s understanding of the day-to-day or period-to-period needs of students is best exemplified by OneNote Class Notebooks. There are many improvements to this Sharepoint-powered feature. Most notable of those improvements is the Class Notebooks tab, which gives teachers distribution and review abilities with many fewer clicks. Bravo! While the journey has been a long one, I am happier to come around to Microsoft’s Office 365 suite.
In the videos below, see how to set up and sync a Class Notebook to a Mac. Also, learn about the features of the OneNote tab in the Mac OSX app (which is a little watered down from the PC version, but a huge productivity booster when using Class Notebooks).
