With back-to-school season in full swing or just about to get going in many countries, it’s a good time to reflect on the excitement around OneNote Class Notebooks and Staff Notebooks. The original OneNote Class Notebook app was in preview release during the summer of 2014 and went to general availability in October of 2014. Since then, we’ve had hundreds of thousands of teachers using the app in Office 365—resulting in millions of student notebooks created. We also just released some big updates for the 2016/2017 school year. In just one week, we’ve seen more class notebooks created than the entire 2014/2015 school year! We’ve heard from all over the world about teachers’ and schools’ desire to use class and staff notebooks, so we have enabled the app in a set of new countries and regions.
OneNote Class and Staff Notebook app—now available via Office 365 in 90 new countries and regions
In early August, we enabled OneNote Class and Staff Notebooks for 90 new countries around the world—bringing the grand total to 151 countries where Office 365 Education customers can use the OneNote Class or Staff Notebook app.
We already had class and staff notebooks created in many of these new countries and, as you can see by the map, there are lots of countries (highlighted with purple for OneNote) using OneNote Class and Staff Notebooks!
