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 365, 2019 or 2016 software. There are very few differences between the 365 and 2016 versions for an end-user. Our instructors have used all versions and will be able to quickly highlight the small changes to the user interface between versions. Users of any of the versions of OneNote will have no problem learning in the 2019 software environment.

Course Objectives:
In this course, you will develop digital note-taking skills by creating, modifying, and managing OneNote notebooks that work with other Microsoft Office programs.
You will:
• Navigate and customize the OneNote interface and environment.
• Add and format text, images, audio, links, and drawing objects to a notebook.
• Embed Excel spreadsheets and attach other files to a notebook.
• Categorize, organize, and search notebook content.
• Check spelling in, print, and password-protect notebooks.
• Use Outlook and OneDrive to send and share notebook content.
• Export notebook content and manage notebook history and backups.

Target Student
This course is intended for people in a variety of roles and fields who have a basic understanding of Microsoft Office and want to incorporate digital note-taking and note collaboration by using Microsoft OneNote. In addition to creating and modifying OneNote notebooks, this course will introduce you to inserting images and embedding files into notebooks, categorizing content, sharing content with OneDrive®, and exporting content to other file formats.

To ensure your success in this course, you should have Windows end-user skills that include starting and closing applications, navigating basic file structures, and managing files and folders. Previous experience with OneNote is not required; however, having a basic understanding of the Microsoft Office productivity suite would be beneficial.
