What is OneNote
OneNote is a digital notebook, great for capturing, storing, and sharing all
kinds of information. Whether you’re at home, in school, or in the office, use
OneNote to take notes wherever you go. OneNote automatically saves and
synchronizes your notes so you can focus on your thoughts and ideas.
With Microsoft OneNote, teachers can create notebooks that help them stay
organized, deliver curriculum, and collaborate with students and colleagues.
OneNote is a free download for Windows, Windows Phone, Mac, iPads,
iPhones and Android devices.
NOTE: You don’t get all the features on all platforms, but you get most of what
you need.
OneNote Online lets you take notes and organize note pages in a web browser,
and it comes with all paid Office subscriptions.
NOTE: The notebook you open in OneNote Online is the same as the notebook
you open in the OneNote desktop app, but some features work differently in the
two environments.
Notebooks are synced via your Microsoft account so any changes you make will
instantly be updated on your other devices.
Quick Start Guide
OneNote Basics
A OneNote Notebook is organized
into Sections and Pages, and it’s
easy to make them colorful. A
OneNote Notebook never runs
out of pages, the pages never run
out of space, and you can add as
many sections as you want.
OneNote Basics
• Type or write notes
o Click wherever you want a note to
appear, and then start typing
o To begin a note elsewhere on the
page, just click and start typing there
• Organize with tables
o Type, then press TAB to create a table
o Quickly sort and shade tables
o Convert tables to Excel spreadsheets
• Insert links, files, pictures to your notes
• Remember everything
o Add Tags to any notes
o Make checklists and to-do lists
o Create your own custom tags
• Keep everything in sync
o People can edit pages at the same
o Real-Time Sync on the same page
o Everything stored in the cloud
o Accessible from any device
OneNote Nice Features
Embed anything: You can embed almost any file into a OneNote page — screen clips,
pictures, scanned documents or images, audio and video files, Excel spreadsheets.
Do napkin math: Just type the equation anywhere on OneNote’s page surface,
followed by an equal sign. As soon as you press the spacebar or Enter, OneNote
performs the calculation
Record audio and video on the fly: You can record audio or video clips in OneNote.
Create custom tags: OneNote lets you tag your notes for easy searching and sorting.
While the app provides many evergreen tags such as “To-do,” “Important,” and
“Remember for later,” the real power is the ability to create your own tags specific to
common tasks.
Search: OneNote has a great search function built in, that will search through all your
notebooks, or just the one you are working on, to find the notes you need.
History: You can see previous versions of your notebook and restore to an earlier
version. If students are working collaboratively on a OneNote project, the teacher
can use the Find by Author option to see who did what in the notebook
OneNote Class Notebook
What is OneNote Class Notebook
OneNote Class Notebook is a tool to
help teachers create notebooks with
preassigned classroom permissions.
OneNote Class Notebook provide
teachers the ability to collaborate on
class projects, share assignments
with students, and provide feedback
on student work.
Each Class Notebook is organized
into three areas:
1. Collaboration space
2. Content library
3. Student notebooks
Notebook Overview
Collaboration Space
o A notebook for everyone in your class to share, organize, and collaborate.
o Everyone can read and write to the Collaboration Space
Content Library
o A read-only notebook where teachers can share handouts with students.
o Students can only read -- i.e. pull from -- the Content Library. They cannot edit.
o Teachers can read and write to the Content Library
Student Notebooks
o A private notebook shared between the teacher and each individual student.
o Teachers can read and write to all student notebooks
o Students cannot see other private section groups outside their own
Launch OneNote
Class Notebook App
Launch the OneNote Class Notebook

the app launcher ( ) icon in the upper left corner.
2. In the list of apps that appears, click the “Class Notebook” app.
Create a
Class Notebook
Create a Class Notebook
1. Click Create a class notebook from the available options.
Add Notebook Name
2. Name your new notebook, and then click “Next”.
NOTE: Each notebook you create must have a unique name, and it cannot contain these
characters # / * ? ” | < > : . % ‘ \.
TIP: We recommend that you create a separate notebook for each class. To avoid conflicts
when naming a notebook, we propose of using the following naming convention:
School number is an identification number provided by each country to the selected schools.
For example, if you teach Math in Spain you can name the notebook “ES-Sch1-A1-Math”.
Notebook Overview
3. The OneNote Class Notebook provisions a notebook with three section groups,
each with its own unique permissions.
Add Another Teacher (Optional)
4. On this screen, you have the option to add another teacher to your class
notebook. Any teacher added will have the same permissions as you do. You can
add as many as you’d like.
5. Enter the name(s) of the teacher and click “Next”.
Add Students Names
6. You can add your students individually or in bulk (see next slide).
NOTE: Your students must have an Office 365 organization account to continue with this
step. If you aren’t sure whether or not they do, ask your IT Administrator.
7. Click “Next” when you’ve completed adding all of your students for the class and
the names have fully resolved.
Add Students Names
Add Students Individually
Type a student’s name in the text box, then press Enter.
As you type, the app will look up possible matches. For example, you can type
“Tevin” and it will find any students matching that name.
Repeat 1st step until you’ve added all of your students, and then click “Next”.
Add Students in Bulk
Copy and paste a list of the students’ names, separated by a semicolon (;) into the
text box.
After you paste the students’ names into the text box, the app will look up each
name. The app may take a few moments to automatically resolve each name. For
each match that isn’t found, you can retype the name or remove the name from
the text box.
Click “Next” when you’ve completed adding all of your students for the class and
the names have fully resolved.
Design Student Spaces
8. Keep the boxes checked next to the default sections that you'd like created in
each student’s notebook.
9. Click “Add more” to add additional sections in each student’s notebook.
10. Click “Next” when finished.
Design Student Spaces
TIP: We recommend that you create section names that correspond to activities, NOT units. For
example, use activities such as Handouts, Class Notes, and Quizzes. The reason for this is that
students work in one unit at a time; it will take longer to find items of interest in a unit section.
NOTE: You can also add, remove, and delete sections directly in your students’ notebooks after
the class notebook is created.
11. Click “Teacher's notebook”, and “Student's notebook” to verify how the subnotebooks and sections will be created for the class.
12. Click “Create” to have the app create your class notebook.
13. Click the notebook name link to open your class notebook in OneNote. As soon as
the notebook is ready for your students, email the hyperlink shown in the text
box to your class for your students to open. You can retrieve this link later in
OneNote 2013 by right-clicking the class notebook in the notebook list, and then
clicking Copy Link to Notebook.
TIP: You may wish to add content by placing it in the Content Library before inviting your
students to open the class notebook. Keep a copy of the link in your records while you
prepare the notebook, then share the link with the students when ready.

1. To find any link to a class notebook that you have, simply launch the app (see
