The class notebook add-in for OneNote just got even better. Now I can create assignments in OneNote that publish to my learning management system and even post grades, straight from OneNote. There are just four easy steps. To set this up and I’ll walk you through each one on the following slides. Step 1: connect your LMS to OneNote. You’ll notice a new button in your class notebook add in ribbon for connections. It’s here that I select which LMS I’m connecting to. You can see that OneNote already connects to many systems and there are more coming soon. I’ll select my LMS from the list and then type in the URL to my LMS site. I’ll then be asked for a username and password. Use the same one you use to sign into your LMS. Here I’ll click accept so that OneNote and my LMS can sync with each other. Now I have a new button that appears in the ribbon called manage classes. clicking on it will open my browser and take me straight to my LMS, pretty cool, huh…. Step 2: Map your class notebooks. The first thing I’ll do is make sure that OneNote knows which notebook belongs to which particular course. From the connection button I’ll choose map class notebooks. I need to tell OneNote which notebooks align to which course I’m teaching, so I’ll match up my class notebooks to the courses I teach and click OK. Step 3: Create an assignment. You’ll notice I now have a new button called create assignment. You can use anything inside your content library or collaboration space to create an assignment for your class. Let’s go ahead and click on it. Notice that these fields are pre-populated based on information from the OneNote page itself but can be updated however you like. The title is what will appear in the page itself as well as the description. I’ll chose a due date and I will also have the option to add in the time as well. This I will automatically add this assignment to my course calendar in canvas. Now when I hit the create button the page will be copied to each student’s private notebooks. In addition OneNote also pushes assignment information automatically into my LMS. Let’s go check out what this looks like in my course. You can see a new assignment notification posted in the course with due dates. If I click on the assignment I can see the details inside that I created in OneNote. The title, description, due date and time are all here. The assignment appears on the Calendar as well which helps students keep track of the assignments due dates Step 4: Review and submit grades Once students have completed the assignment I can go back and review their work right inside OneNote. After I click on the review student work button I’ll check the box to enter in the grades and then expand this assignment. Here I can enter in a score for each student. As I click on the students names it takes me directly to their submission in their private notebooks. After I score all the students I click Submit. These grades will sync with my LMS gradebook and are easy to update. Now we can see that the scores I just entered in and OneNote are live in my grade book here in my LMS. Let’s say I wanted to make a grade change and give 10 more points to Cheryl’s score I can click on enter grades and then update the score from a 75 to an 85 and then click Submit. These grades updates will also show up in my canvas gradebook. Once I refresh my canvas page I can see Cheryl’s new score of 85. Making grade updates is incredibly easy and saves me a bunch of time in my classroom. Thank you very much for watching this mix on connecting your LMS with OneNote. Enjoy using class notebook and don’t forget to check out the OneNote and education partner site regularly for updates to your specific LMS.
