Introduction to Microsoft OneNote

As digital content becomes increasingly more prevalent and using digital tools becomes essential to how we work, “note-taking” or content management tools knowledge is no longer “nice to have”. COVID-19 has accelerated our need to manage data remotely, digitally, and more effectively. In this session, you will learn how to use OneNote to create, save and organize your digital content. OneNote is way more than a “note-taking” tool.

Major Topics

In this session, we explore the Microsoft OneNote app, built into the Office Suite that all of us use. The purpose, structure and best practices for getting started and using the app will be covered.
