  • Record audio and video files directly into your notes
  • Access from mobile devices and share with others

How do I access it?

You can access OneNote via the following mechanisms:

  • Log in via a web browser using your University School or Work Account - OneNote
  • Desktop Client - OneNote is available as part of the Office 365 installation for Windows and Macintosh desktop clients.
