Course Description

New to Microsoft OneNote? Wondering what it does, or whether it can help you become a productivity ninja at work or at school?

This is the course for you.

Because in the time it takes to watch a movie, you can be Up to Speed with OneNote 2013.

As you'll see, there's a reason Microsoft included it with all versions of Office, and why it's available for free the App store for use on a Mac.

The reason is this:

Imagine having all your notes in one place. Backed up. Searchable. OneNote could save your bacon when you're trying to remember what that professor said in last week's class. It could win you high praise when you're the only one who can track down those meeting minutes from 6 months ago.

And what's more, it takes just a few minutes to get Up to Speed.

In the span of a single afternoon, students can expect to learn how to:

  • create and manage OneNote notebooks
  • add and position notes on notebook pages
  • work with attachments and images
  • email and print notes
  • and a few power-user techniques. Just because.

In fact, once you've gone through this course, you might decide that it's time for your paper notebooks to go the way of your movies on video tape. Because technology.

So sign up today. Results are guaranteed - you've got nothing to lose, besides the headache of keeping track of all that paper.

About the Instructor:

I'm Brian. A Microsoft Certified Instructor. Over the course of 10 years, I've authored over 30 technical titles for publishers like O'Reilly, McGraw-Hill and Addison-Wesley. I've taught technical subjects to individuals and Fortune 500 companies - clients like Microsoft, Sprint, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Budweiser.

But most importantly, I think OneNote is really cool, and think more people would use to keep their lives more organized if they understood a little more about what it can do.
