OneNote Class Notebook

Jump to: navigation, search

Our OneNote Class Notebook integration is developed for schools, which want to avoid manual configuration and maintenance when using OneNote Class Notebook. The integration automatically extracts data from your student administration system and synchronizes it with OneNote Class Notebook, creating Notebooks for students and teachers. This makes it very easy to start using the learning tool in class. Once the configuration is done, teachers and students will get access to a wide range of useful tools. Your OneNote Class Notebooks can be created before the school year starts, giving teachers the opportunity to prepare themselves and upload materials at their own pace. If new students start after the school year has begun they too are automatically created and maintained in OneNote Class Notebook.

  • It is not posible for teachers to Add/Remove other teachers, all maintenance must be done through the studyadministrative system such as Ludus, Lectio etc.
  • Notebooks will be kept alive for students from study start to study end, ie. 3 years if they study at a Danish gymnasium.
