- Every single power point, PDF, and word document can be loaded into Onenote, allowing for every single lecture note and piece of review material to be instantly accessible with one program. Trust me, this is easier than making folders upon folders for all the different subjects.
- Search features
- Who doesn't love the control f function? In Onenote, not only do you have this search feature, but you can search your entire program (everything). Why is this useful? Let's say I hear a term that I know I've heard before but I forget what it is and when we learned it (this happens a lot). What do I do? With a few keystrokes I do a search for it, and seconds later I'm looking at the exact spot in the lecture power point from 6 months ago where we discussed it with my annotations. You can't beat that organization and accessibility.
- Annotating everything from PDF documents to powerpoints could not be easier. It's like a little piece of heaven.
You might have to try it before you really understand what I'm talking about, but I don't know anyone who has tried Onenote and not fallen in love with it.
|This is a screen shot from one of my lecture notes|
For reference, I provided a screen shot of the program. The left is where I can switch to different notebooks for each block (1, 2, 3, 4). The top has my different subjects for that block, such as anatomy, histology, cardiac, respiratory, etc. The right has my lectures or other review pages for the subject.
