Introducing How to OneNote – Scenario-based OneNote Tutorials

Posted on

We have finally come to the end of the year and to end this year on a positive note, we are launching our last website in the free Office 2013 How-to tutorials series.

If you haven’t kept up with our series and what we do – We have been helping users increase productivity using Microsoft Office for many years through our scenario-based tutorials. We have received astounding feedback from people around the world, and our tutorials are available through numerous online training platforms such as Udemy, CyberU and OpenSesame – in addition to our own website Business Productivity.

Although many users and organizations today have transitioned to subscription-based applications through Office 365,  there are many individuals and businesses that still use the previous, standalone versions of MS Office, including Office 2013 and Office 2010. We believe there is a sizable demographic that do not have the financial means to invest in courses on how to use these tools effectively, that would significantly benefit from tapping into the wealth of knowledge we provide through our tutorials.

This is where How-to OneNote comes in. How-to OneNote is a new website where we make our tutorials available for free to help people across the globe master Microsoft OneNote 2013 creative notes across devices, prepare and conduct professional job interviews and get organized with a digital notebook.

Our tutorials consist of 6 scenarios that we believe are essential for Microsoft OneNote users. They are easy to follow and are available to view in both video and text formats. The good news is that these tutorials are unrestricted and can be accessible from anywhere in the world, on any smart device, at any time. (If you prefer, the tutorials are also available directly from our YouTube channel.)

What makes How to OneNote tutorials different?

  1. Our tutorials focus on the end result rather than accentuating on individual features
  2. Scenario-based learning tutorials are more engaging
  3. Each tutorial demonstrates best practices
  4. They are easy to understand with captions provided for those who with hearing impairment or have trouble understanding English

We are so excited about sharing our knowledge with a larger audience and we truly believe How to OneNote will help end-users everywhere increase their productivity. For people who find ads to be annoying, or that desire a richer learning environment, we continue to provide these OneNote tutorials ad-free through Business Productivity, Udemy, CyberU and now also through Vimeo On Demand.
