The structure you need with the flexibility you want 


OneNote is one of Microsoft’s unsung heroes: a digital notebook that allows you to organize notes, meeting minutes, project documents, and more—all in one place. It’s like having an old-school, three-ring binder with unlimited sections to store all of your information and links, and your notebook won’t weigh you down. Plus, no one will have to copy your notes as you can share them digitally to collaborate with others. 


Note: While many of the features are the same in other versions, this course is specific to the Windows 10 version of Microsoft OneNote.

You will learn how to add and format content including text, tables, embedded files, and links.
