If advised, Year 12 and 10 students can access teacher instruction, resources, attach completed work and receive feedback using OneNote Classroom Notebooks.  

OneNote Class Notebook is a powerful piece of software which includes three types of sub-notebooks:

  1. Content Library — a notebook for teachers to share course materials with students. Teachers can add and edit its materials, but for students, the notebook is read-only.
  2. Collaboration Space — a notebook for all students and the teacher in the class to share, organise, and collaborate. This may be restricted based on teacher preference and judgement.
  3. Student Notebooks — private notebooks that are shared between each teacher and their individual students. Teachers can access these notebooks at any time, but students cannot see other students’ notebooks.

Using OneNote Class Notebook teachers can:

  • Distribute new pages, sections, or section groups to students easily and quickly
  • Distribute a single chunk of text, an image, or an ink selection to all students
  • Attach lesson material including worksheets, slides or voice recordings
  • Set individualised learning through distribution of new materials to specified students or student groups
  • Sequentially review student work (assignments, quizzes, etc.)

OneNote is cross platform and freely available on desktop, online, tablet and mobile platforms. As such students can:

  • Use their standard web browser – OneNote is compatible with Chrome, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge and Firefox
  • Download the desktop application  
  • Download the mobile and tablet compatible OneNote application
