o365: OneNote Class Notebook Ad-In Brings AWESOME Functionality

I am excited to share some added functionality to the Class Notebook.  It is called the Class Notebook Ad-In.  You can do the following with a couple clicks of a mouse!

  1. Add a section to each student’s notebook.
  2. Add a page to each student’s notebook.
  3. Review/supply feedback to each student’s assigned work (that you added as a page), easily!

See this short video for an example of these features. Download the Class Notebook Add-In for free here: https://www.onenote.com/classnotebook

This is one of the best note taking app’s that I have ever used.  You can access it from your PC, MAC, any Tablet or phone… and it is synced with all devices.  The quick access that I have from my PC makes this easy and efficient – there is a nice download option that makes it as if it is part of your PC. You can use this to back-up emails as well, it embeds in your Outlook mail tool bar!  The organization is exquisite!  Stop taking notes all over the place and get organized with Evernote! Evernote works hand in hand with Skitch, an image annotation tool.  https://evernote.com/ or go straight to the Intro page to get started!  https://evernote.com/introduction/
