OneNote Class Notebook is an add-in for OneNote that helps you to streamline the use of OneNote between you, the teacher, and your class of numerous students. Teachers spent too long in the past building notebooks with varying settings to allow OneNote to be the absolute one stop shop for class delivery, content management and collaboration.
This app will create a class notebook, which includes three types of sub-notebooks:
- Student Notebooks — private notebooks that are shared between each teacher and their individual students. Teachers can access these notebooks at any time, but students cannot see other students’ notebooks.
- Content Library — a notebook for teachers to share course materials with students. Teachers can add and edit its materials, but for students, the notebook is read-only.
- Collaboration Space — a notebook for all students and the teacher in the class to share, organize, and collaborate.
