The next iPad User Group meeting is noon-1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, in 21 Bluemont Hall. The agenda is Microsoft OneNote, which is used to capture and organize lists, notes, webpages, and documents into digital notebooks. OneNote is part of the Office 365 suite that is free for K-Staters.

OneNote offers typed or hand-written notes, audio recording, search tools, and integration with the Office suite (Word, PowerPoint, Excel). Your notebooks can be synced to the OneDrive for Business cloud, making them accessible on all your devices – desktop (Mac and PC), iPad, iPhone, and also Android.

Free add-ons for OneNote:

  • OneNote Clipper.  Clip any web page to OneNote and view it later, online or offline. Save recipes, research, trip-planning information, creative inspiration, etc.
  • Office Lens.  Use as a scanner to take photos of whiteboards and documents; trim and enhance images; make them readable; then save to OneNote. You can also use Office Lens to convert images to PDF, Word, and PowerPoint.

Come and share your experiences or ask questions!  You are welcome to bring your lunch.
