Introducing: Microsoft OneNote
1 September 2013
What is OneNote?
Let's say that you're walking to work meetings. You usually take your notebook to meetings. Suppose said notebook is a digital, modular, flexible and ever-changing notebook with many features including sharing knowledge with other users. Well, that is OneNote.
Consider your project folder. It contains several documents, such as Word files, PowerPoint presentations and a few pictures in folders and sub-folders. Now, consider possibly binding them all in one digital document folder shared (fully or partially) with other users.
