Last modified 2/15/2024

Microsoft OneNote is a note-taking program that enables users to take notes, draw, keep to-do lists, and collaborate with other users. OneNote is available through your Microsoft 365 account.


Microsoft OneNote allows students to type notes while recording lectures, along with importing PowerPoint presentations, images, or drawings to keep course information in one place. Notes can be accessed from a computer or mobile device at any time. For more information about OneNote features, review the OneNote product page.
