What is OneNote?

OneNote is Microsoft program that allows you to capture, organise and share digital notes. It is freely available on desktop, online, tablet and mobile platforms.

Acting as a digital notebook, OneNote allows media rich capturing of notes such as text, pictures, photos (captured directly from a phone), web clippings, audio, video and digital drawing.

It also supports searching, tagging and intelligent organisation of notes that you capture.
