enjoyed learning efficient ways to utilise one note into my daily work schedule. Found the course to be informative and beneficial.
(4.40 out of 5) Nicole G [ 16 March, 2022 ]
I have been able to learn areas within one note that i did not have the knowledge of previously. In particular that the one note for windows 10 was not the best app to be using. Good resource to take away with me.
(4.60 out of 5) Helen G [ 19 August, 2021 ]
It was really good to learn new tips and tricks and a good refresher on how I can use OneNote even better
(4.70 out of 5) Philip L [ 19 August, 2021 ]
Working in IT hand having used OneNote for a couple of years I was skeptical about how useful the course would be for me. However all of the content was new and I learnt many useful features and capabilities. I'm really impressed with the course content and delivery.
