OneNote Tips

There have recently been a number of new blog posts and articles on power user tips for OneNote.  Blog posters at Petri.com have a series they are labeling as “Leveraging OneNote”  which I found well worth reading.  Recent posts in the series has talked about manipulating lists and using OneNote for project management.

Best Posts in 2016:

Several of my favorite sources have posted summaries of their best posts in 2016.  In case you missed them the first time around, they are worth visiting now:   Michael Hyatt’s Top 10 posts/podcasts of 2016  and also his list for Top 5 Business Books of 2016. (One of which is Cal Newport’s book, Deep Work, that I also reviewed here in October!

From Bonnie Stachowiak at Teaching in Higher Ed we have her Top 10 Downloaded podcasts of 2016.

And while we are visiting the Teaching in Higher Ed site, Bonnie also had a great post recently on her recently updated Personal Knowledge Management System.

From the Greater Good Science Center we have Their Top 10 Insights from ‘The Science of a Meaningful Life’ in 2016.  The folks at this Berkeley center always have interesting posts.  And the librarian in me couldn’t pass up the opportunity to highlight their post on Our Favorite Books of 2016.   By the way, their great MOOC, The Science of Happiness started up again on Jan 3rd.  You can still register and catch up.  I really loved this study when I did it in 2014 (see my discussion of it here) and recommend it to all of my readers as well.

  • Thanks for the kind words about my revised PKM post and for letting others know about the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast. I am excited to check out the Greater Good resources. I was able to hear Dr. Dachner Keltner speak a few months ago. He’s such a dynamic presenter and I am looking forward to learning more via your links.
