Project Details


Professor West uses OneNote and OneNote Class Notebook extensively in his CHEM 450 Organic Chemistry course. This resource is designed to provide you support in the use of this powerful tool as you complete assignments for your coursework. Specifically, we will walk you through this unique Microsoft tool by covering how the editor works, the process for importing images, taking screen clips, locking notes, several aspects of tagging notes, and using the equation editor. The use of Lynda content is extensive so please head directly to the section on signing up for you Lynda account first so that you can access all the video training resources we have curated for you on this page.


Before you Begin

Accessing Adobe Tools

We have created a list of Lynda courses to help you use these many tools. If you are new to Lynda you will need to create an account. All WSU employees and students can create a Lynda account, but the steps vary depending on where you are located The following article walks you through the process of creating your account from any location.

If you already have an account and want to change your password for lynda.com, go to the Profile section on the main page of Lynda under your name in the upper right corner. If you forgot your password and need to reset it, use the Forgot Password link on the Sign In page.

Using the OneNote Editor

The way Microsoft_OneNote handles your edits and content can seem a bit different than other Microsoft products and after viewing this video you will see how the sections, pages, and basic edits are handled to keep your notes organized.

You may also want to view content from another application and OneNote will allow you to print content into your notebooks to keep formatting and styles in your OneNote version. While you could copy and paste this method, however, this method allows you to have a much closer version of the content you were viewing online, from a document, or presentation.

Importing Images

The use of images is extensive in this class and adding these to your notes is very similar to many of the other Microsoft products, but the following video walks you through the details of this process.

Capturing Screen Clips

This is another area where OneNote is different than another Microsoft is different. In the following video, you will learn the different ways you can do screen clips.

Locking Notes

One of the most powerful research aspects of OneNote is the feature locking your research (e.g. journal articles, other papers, and online websites) to your notes for efficient and effective recall when you go back to study for exams and in other courses. The following video explains how to lock your notes to the other content you are learning.

Search and Taggin Notes

Have you ever found yourself wondering where an old set of notes are or need to follow up on a task that you lost track of while studying? OneNote is brilliant at allowing you to search for old content and tag notes so that you can easily find resources and checklists. The following videos explain how to search and tag your notes.

Using the Equation Editor

The Equation Tool is fully integrated into OneNote and the following videos explain how to use this tool by simply selecting what equations you want to insert along with using digital ink equations.
