This page describes best practice using free-form information gathering and multi-user collaboration enabling notes to be shared with other OneNote users over the internet or network.
Download the latest version of the modern OneNote client application:
Note: OneNote 2016 on Windows is no longer recommended by Microsoft.
Active relates to the application you are using.
Note: A new student to the class should allow enough time for the first initial sync to occur. This time will vary based on the size and number of notebooks that need to sync.
Planning is key to improve optimal use of Class Notebooks, as new sections and large content are added it will take time for the Class Notebook to sync.
Note: new pages do not need a manual sync if they are created in an existing section and students have previously had a successful sync.
Inserting/attaching/embedding large files such as PDF’s, word documents, videos etc will slow down the syncing process and distribution of content to students as this increases the size of the page and the Class Notebook as a whole.
And less attaching files and inserting file printouts from PDFs
When a page is distributed to a student’s section, it essentially grabs a copy of the page and places it in the student’s section. This process electronically replicates photocopying a handout and giving a copy to each student.
Where possible, distribute pages ahead of time. This is especially important if the page to be distributed is heavy (includes one or more images or attachments) and/or if the class size is larger than 25 students.
In all instances of troubleshooting OneNote for either the teacher or the student, please ensure OneNote is open and is not minimised, in other words keep OneNote active.
Use the Notebook navigation pane to confirm if the Notebook is still syncing.
Turn off auto sync attachments on your iPad by navigating to the sync page in your OneNote settings. All text and ink content will still sync automatically, but OneNote pages with rich content like images and PDFs will wait to sync until you visit the page. After that, the page you visited will begin syncing automatically.
