OneNote Check In

I have at least a dozen learners using OneNote.  I wish there were a way to share pages; I can see that the option exists, but the lab and our active directory as it is set up, won’t allow it.  The students are working collaboratively on a group project and need to be able to easily share information. There is a way to share a OneNote page by email, or save as pdf/Word document.  Right now, they are saving as a Word document, and sharing in the LMS.  It is a bit of a round about way to share the material, but it is all we have for now…

(The problem with sharing files in the LMS WIKI is that there is a maximum data limit of 1MB, which pretty much precludes sharing anything with a picture.)

So far, OneNote is going well with the group.  They are still wading their way through it and getting to know the set up and functions.  They were also excited to know that they could continue to create separate notebooks for different courses (they will be taking some credit courses after this.)

Quartz:  As with any new app or program, there needs to be a field test.  This is currently underway with Quartz.  I’m fortunate to be able to get a peak, but the program itself hasn’t been launched yet.  So, while I will still have a look at the inner workings, I will hold off blogging about it until its official launching (which I hope will be soon).

If you want more information about Quartz, the Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks has a short write up on it.  You can access the link by clicking here.
