OneNote in education

Schoolwork includes a lot of information, and OneNote helps you, your students, and your teachers capture it all, on all your devices. With it, everyone can stay organised, share lessons, work together, and even spark their creativity. While inspiration can come from anywhere, it should all end up in OneNote

Inspires your students’ creativity

Set your students’ creativity free by giving them the tools they need to work the way they want to. If they like to type, OneNote handles text, checklists, tables, attachments and links with ease. And if they like to hand write notes and sketch diagrams, it turns handwriting into typed text automatically. They can even write anywhere on the page—just like on paper—without worrying about the layout.

Helps teachers stay organised

Make your teachers' jobs easier by giving them the tools they need to stay organised. In OneNote, they can organise their lesson plans and course content in searchable digital notebooks. Each teacher has a personal workspace for every student, a content library for handouts, and a collaboration space for lessons and creative activities. And they can be viewed from any device, online or offline.

Makes creating and sharing lessons easy

Creating interesting lessons is easier than ever in OneNote Class Notebooks. Starting from their existing lesson plans, your teachers can add web content, videos, and audio recordings—for customised lessons that get their students’ attention. They simply share the digital notebook—no more class handouts—to assign work. And students can highlight, annotate, sketch, take notes and hand in their homework—all in the same notebook.
