Microsoft Office OneNote Course Outline
In our fast-paced digital world, the need to capture ideas, meeting notes, and to-do items is ever present. Microsoft® Office OneNote® provides a way for you to efficiently create and collect your notes in an electronic notebook. This course will introduce you to using OneNote notebooks to store a wide variety of content in an organized structure, access the content from anywhere, and also share it with others. Additionally, learning how OneNote and the other applications in the suite are integrated increases your productivity with Microsoft Office.
*** Version Note ***
This course is for individuals using OneNote 2016 or 2013 and is taught using OneNote 2016 software. However, there are very few differences between the 2016 and the 2013 versions from an end-user's perspective. Our instructors have used both versions and will be able to quickly highlight the several small changes to the user interface. Users of any of the 2 versions of OneNote will have no problem learning in the 2016 software environment.
In this course, you will develop digital note-taking skills by creating, modifying, and managing OneNote notebooks that work with other Microsoft Office programs.
