About Microsoft OneNote Class Notebooks

Class Notebook is part of OneNote. Each one includes a Content Library for teachers to share course content, a Collaboration Space where teachers and students can work together, and a private notebook for each student. After a Class Notebook is created, teachers and students can access it from any device using the OneNote app. 

The OneNote Class Notebook is an app that helps you set up OneNote in your class. This app will create a class notebook, which includes three types of sub-notebooks: 

  • Student Notebooks: private notebooks that are shared between each teacher and their individual students. Teachers can access these notebooks at any time, but students cannot see other students’ notebooks. 
  • Content Library: a notebook for teachers to share course materials with students. Teachers can add and edit its materials, but for students, the notebook is read-only. 
  • Collaboration Space: a notebook for all students and the teacher in the class to share, organize, and collaborate.
