OneNote is different to Microsoft Word as it allows you to gather and organise:
- Audio and video recordings
- Web links
- Screen clippings
By keeping all your information in one place it can reduce the time you spend searching for web pages, email messages, paper, notebooks, folders and print outs.
In OneNote you can have multiple notebooks. Each notebook contains sections (like the subject dividers of a notebook) and these sections can contain one or more pages.
For example, you could have notebook for one of your modules. Your notebook could have a section for each lecture, and each section could have a page for you to take lecture notes.
