Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook

What is it

OneNote Class Notebook allows teachers to create a digital notebook for each class, group, term, or project. Teachers can create, manage, and distribute instructional content to entire classes or individual students. The flexible, yet structured format works similarly to traditional notebooks while allowing teachers to provide instant, real-time feedback to their students.

Class Notebook includes a personal workspace for each student, a Content Library for shared information, and a Collaboration Space where student groups can work together.

OneNote Class Notebook will allow you to:

  • Organise your lesson plans and course content into your own digital notebook.
  • Create and deliver interactive lessons.
  • Collaborate and provide individualised feedback and support by typing or writing directly into each student’s private notebook.
