OneNote continues to be a tool that really shines and its use is on the upswing.  It can help you organize so much of your day to day life and activities that the possibilities are endless.

An area that OneNote is getting a lot of traction in is education.  That area is becoming so much of a focus for the program that just last week Microsoft announced a dedicated OneNote in Education blog.

Another piece of proof that education is a key area for OneNote use is the OneNote Class Notebook Creator that was released back in October of this year.

Well that app continues to evolve and is getting an update today that adds several requested and new features:

  • The ability to add more teachers to the class notebook
  • Support for new languages and markets, bringing the total up to 10 languages and 21 markets with more coming in the near future
  • Improved discoverability of class notebooks by adding them to Shared with me in OneDrive for Business and adding a Class Notebooks entry to the Quick Launch navigation pane on SharePoint Team sites
  • Automatically send an email to teachers and students when the class notebook is created
  • Find existing class notebooks from within the app by clicking the Get notebook links button
  • Performance improvements resulting in a 66% reduction in notebook creation time
  • Reduced the need for the tool to require Full Control permissions for teachers
  • Additional user interface improvements and bug fixes

A great tool continues to get even better.

OneNote has allowed me to take my podcast paperless and helped me stop printing out stacks of paper each week.
