(Note: This is the fourth tip in our Getting Started series for OneNote.)
Now that you know how to set up a notebook, add stuff to it, and find everything fast, what other useful things can you learn to do in OneNote? How about the fact that you can record and add audio? And video? In this post you'll learn how to do both.
Want to record your professor's lecture and add it to your class notes in OneNote? All you have to do is place your curser at the spot on the page where you want the audio, then on the Insert tab, click Record Audio. You can also move the file around on the page once the recording is done. (Make sure you've got the prof's permission before recording!)
Click the arrow to the left of the recording to play it:
Or you can play it back using the controls that appear at the top of your page:
Maybe you also want to capture your professor's lecture on video. The steps to recording a video are the same as recording audio--except you click a different button. On the Insert tab, click Record Video.
Can you link viedo and text entry as is possible with Pear Note for Mac? In Pear Note if you click in the text notes typed while the video was recording, the video jumps to the time at which that text was typed....
As a teacher, I've found room for improvements in the audio - text synchronization in OneNote. However, I've only gotten up to OneNote 2003 and would like to know if OneNote 2013 addresses these issues.
I like a particular feature seen in Livescribe pens, where one can click on a particular word that was earlier written in a note and the audio will start playing at that very point.
In OneNote 2003, one has to start playing the audio at the beginning of a big audio block and then move a slider in the audio gadget with the hopes of finding the desired starting point. Here we have to manually find an audio point to match the desired text point.
Another issue I've noticed is that if one switches sections in OneNote 2003 while recording audio, the audio no longer connects with the new section. It's like the audio is not aware that I have switched pages or sections. I switch pages because when I lecture, I want to go to different pages, which have previously been prepared with illustrations, etc. I would like the audio to shut down on the previous page and automatically start up on the new page, so that it will be connected with the text on the new page.
My object is to be able to audio record a whole lecture and then make my lecture available to students. They could download my OneNote file. If I jump around within OneNote, I would like OneNote to be aware of how I jump around (lecture context awareness) and be able to provide audio to match text at any point.
Ultimately, what I'd like is for students to be able to almost watch a "OneNote Movie" of my lecture in the same sequence I gave the lecture along with the capability of fast-forwarding and skipping forward or backward. At any point they stop, the audio will be synchronized.
Maybe way out there would be the capability for my students to synchronize my OneNote lecture with their OneNote notes so that they could jump back and forth between the two.
