Increasingly, teachers are bringing students into the digital age with classroom assets such as tablets and interactive lessons. OneNote Class Notebooks take this to the next level with compelling interactive features for students as well as flexibility and organization for teachers. The OneNote Class Notebook feature is built on the power of OneNote, SharePoint, and OneDrive and must be added to the Office 365 environment by an IT administrator or qualified partner.
Once the Class Notebook feature is installed, it’s very easy to get started – I’d like to provide a high level guide on starting a notebook and give a sneak peek of what they can do.
- This tab is accessible by all students and teachers who were given permission to the notebook. Multiple students and teachers can create new pages, comment and change existing pages, and work together. The Collaboration Space can be viewed as a group working and brainstorming environment.
- This tab is accessible by all students and teachers as well. The content library can be seen as a “file cabinet” from which students can access worksheets and study materials. Everyone can see the Content Library, but only teachers can add, delete, or change the content. Students can copy assignments and assets to their own private spaces.
- On the left sidebar, teachers can see each student’s workspace, which contains the tabs created during the original Class Notebook setup. Students can see only their own workspace, while teachers have access to every student’s workspace. These workspaces give students the freedom to work and be productive in the ways that best suit them, as well as giving teachers the ability to instantly view, grade, and comment on assignments.
As you can see, OneNote for Education has limitless potential – and this is merely scratching the surface of the ability of Office 365 to empower your teachers and students.
