This course is intended to enable the typical student, educator, or business user of a desktop version of Microsoft® Office (2007 or later) to productively use the key components of the Microsoft® Office OneNote® 2013 application on a desktop, laptop, or Microsoft® Windows® 8 tablet device, when working in or away from the primary office or study environment.
OneNote has many features that can improve time management skills, including task lists and scheduling with Microsoft® Outlook®. OneNote also makes it easier to comprehend information by allowing for audio recording and even searching the audio recording for specific spoken words or phrases. Research can be accomplished on the web and links are maintained so you know where you found the information. These are just a few of the note-taking organization features that will be covered in this class.
This course can also be used to prepare for the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Certification exam.
