Microsoft OneNoteDownload Course Outline

This is the outline of our Microsoft OneNote course - Duration: 1 day

OneNote is an electronic version of a paper notebook where you can write down notes, thoughts, ideas, scribbles, reminders, and all kinds of other information. Unlike the traditional document page format of other programs such as word-processing or spreadsheet programs, OneNote offers a free-form canvas where you can type, write, or draw notes in the form of text, graphics, and images wherever and however you want them.

On this course, learn how to use OneNote to add, move, and delete anything on its pages and in its sections. You’ll find out how to add more space where and when you need it, and how you can stay organized by dragging note items into their own sections or even into different notebooks. You’ll also learn how you can separate and organize your notes by subjects or projects, or keep separate notebooks for different places and interests. If you need to share your notes and information, this course will show you how OneNote will let you gather information in electronic notebooks, where you can easily organise, search and share it.  

We specialise on on-site training and can come to you to run our course either on your PC's or provide our own high specification equipment. If you want specific training for your staff, we're happy to customise this course to your requirements, adding or removing topics as necessary.
