Tom — Thank you so much for these videos. Your video Using OneNote in Class was especially helpful. Do you share your notebooks with your class or just individual pages? (I don't know if this is even an option.) In addition, do you encourage the students to develop and share their own notebooks for group work. (Again, as an English professor, I have students peer-edit their papers before submission.)
Again, you are most kind to share these with the forum.
I'm wrestling with several options for reviewing documents. Here's what I've found so far:
A) MS-Word docs and track changes -- I normally would do that when my SP3 is connected to an external monitor, so space isn't an issue. Zoomed out to see comments on the side is too small for my eyes, but it's easy to pan and to zoom in or out. I generally like viewing at page width. That said, I've never really liked Word's track changes. I recently tried Word's inking on my SP3, and that worked great. Basically, I wrote in red over everything. I got positive reviews from the author of the document. I'll probably stick with inking unless someone specifically asks for traditional track changes.
B) PDF files -- I've tried Onenote (importing is fine, but exporting is dodgy), MS-Word (decent), and Xournal (not bad but a bit buggy) for marking up PDF files. The built-in app stinks. I ended up getting the Drawboard PDF app from the MS store, and that works the best for me..
This is a TOTAL stab in the dark, but an idea. You can DL videos with hypertube. You can edit them, then insert it into one note. Seems like alot of work, but that's one way I can think of getting it done.
That is a lot of work and more importantly I think it would interrupt my flow. The lecturer may show a YouTube video on our screens and that is when it would be beneficial to make a clip, usually they are no more than ten to fifteen seconds long, and then annotate it with my thoughts.
I now realize that you are talking about a self-study session, I was thinking of a class situation.
I just got the surface pro 3 and I am looking for an app (or solution on OneNote) wherein I can create flashcards that I can actually write on (just as if it were an actual flashcard). Apps like Flashcards Pro and School Binder require that you type something on both sides of the flashcard or insert an image; you cannot write on the cards.
Also, where can I find the most comprehensive OneNote tutorial for students?
