Microsoft OneNote

I think its safe to say that this is the year that OneNote finally caught on, at least that seems to be the case. We have had a large number of students attending the OneNote class in the past year. Many students came in wondering just what it was, and left wondering how they got along without it. OneNote is a note taking application from Microsoft that lives in the cloud allowing access to your notes from anywhere at any time. It holds a special place for me because it was the first course I ever took at LeapFox and still make use of it nearly every day. I am happy to see it catching on with a large portion of our clients!
