Description

Need to organize your thoughts? Want to never hunt down that one scrap of paper again?


Say hello to Microsoft OneNote. (And to OneNote Like a Boss.

Join author, Microsoft Certified Trainer, and bestselling Udemy instructor Brian Culp for a comprehensive look at OneNote that takes students from newbie to guru with Microsoft's note-taking and thought-capturing software.

There's a reason it's the top OneNote course on Udemy. There's a reason for the hundreds of  five-star reviews. Here's what others are saying:

"Excellent content!  Just what I was looking for to enhance productivity at the office." -Paige Popejoy

"Great personality and explained things well. Felt like he was at my desk explaining it to me."  -William Potts

"I can't believe how much I learned. The instructor is great and the lessons were so easy to follow."  -Sherie L.

"Very precise, clear and constructive." -Forent Sidler

"Perfect."  -Yvonne Belo

Microsoft OneNote Like a Boss includes approximately 8 hours of video instruction delivered in 100 separate, bite-sized lessons, making it perfect for learning the  application from the ground up, or for going back to review/refresh a specific skill. 

Students will quickly progress from OneNote fundamentals to the secrets of the pros by learning about:

  • creating and managing notebooks

  • managing page layout options

  • staying organized with To Do lists

  • inserting screen clips and images

  • recording audio and video notes

  • linking to files and other notebook pages

  • searching for contents within and across notebooks

  • retrieving notes across multiple devices

  • and much more

(And, this course can also help students prepare for the Microsoft Office Specialist 77-421 Certification Exam.) 


Best of all, you'll learn by doing. 

By starting with a blank notebook, and then by following along with the hands-on exercises, students will create a working, real-world notebook which can be customized as needed. Plus, students will be better prepared to use one of several OneNote templates as a starting point.

There's nothing to lose, except that brilliant idea you scribbled on a Post-It (and can't find).

After completing OneNote Like a Boss, you'll be able to use OneNote to organize your classes, your ideas, or your family recipe book. Plus, you'll be able to share those notes with colleagues or family quick and easy. Best of all, you're always covered by Udemy's refund policy.

So: if you're ready for an eye-opening experience learning about OneNote's true potential, please enroll today. Because whether you're taking notes with a keyboard or your finger, sharing out that great inspiration with a coworker, or just simply never want to lose another handwritten note ever again, OneNote can be the perfect tool for organizing notes across devices.

Enroll now, and see you in class!

  • Beginners who want to explore the capabilities of OneNote to create and organize digital notes.
