Very informative course. Has provided a lot of tips and tricks to enable valuable use of OneNote. Perhaps a little more reference to the Text so we can follow along more easily.

(5.00 out of 5) Melissa O [ 16 January, 2020 ]
The One Note course was extremely valuable for me. Working in HR we take notes in great detail and the knowledge we learnt today will save us alot of time and also allow us to share and collaborate better across the Business.

The course was invaluable and covered a lot of useful content. Paul was a great facilitator, answered questions and customised the course so that we could relate it back to our own work environment.
