Hi and welcome to OneNote 2013 Essential Training, I'm David Rivers. In this course, we'll see everything you need to get started using this powerful note-taking software from Microsoft. We'll begin with a quick overview of OneNote 2013, what it is, and how you can use it to improve your productivity. In no time at all, you'll be creating your own digital Notebooks with sections, pages, Subpages, and of course, notes. Then I'll show you how to get all kinds of existing content into your Notebooks like text, images, audio and video, even other files, like Excel Spreadsheets and Visio drawings.

Next, we'll spend some time learning ways to stay organized when working with digital Notebooks, so your work is efficiently as possible, such as using tables to keep your content in its place, and then we'll move on to some formatting options to ensure your Notebooks, pages, and content always look their best. One of the big advantages to working with digital Notebooks is the ability to share and collaborate with others, and we'll see several different ways to share a Notebook with others like saving to the Cloud and inviting people to share.

OneNote 2013 might be considered Microsoft's hidden gem. With so much to cover, let's get started with OneNote 2013 Essential Training.
