We launched OneNote Class Notebooks into the education world back in October 2014. As we mentioned in the blog post yesterday, since the beginning of the school year in the U.S. (June 2015), Class Notebooks have taken off with 400,000 teachers and 3.5 million students being added to Class Notebooks. Teachers, students and schools have been doing some amazing things with Class Notebooks, and in many cases, changing the nature of the classroom with new interaction, feedback and collaboration models that were not possible before. The OneNote team has a history of working closely with teachers and schools to help solve classroom challenges. Class Notebooks came directly from working closely with teachers, listening to how they were using OneNote in the classroom and what they were hoping to be able to do more easily.
The most common piece of feedback we have heard is that teachers want to be able to easily distribute a OneNote page (or pages) to students. This means no more sending students to the Content Library to copy the page themselves. Now a page can be distributed in just two clicks!
