Excalibur Online - Taking notes, version 2.0
Great article at Excalibur Online on taking notes using OneNote and using the tablet pc functionality built-in. Wait until the author uses OneNote 12!
Its ‘write anywhere' capability takes some time to master for those of us who are accustomed to using a word processor. Each time you write on a page, you create a new ‘ink box' to hold your input, and until you get used to writing in this way, these boxes can become confusingly overlapped. Even so, you can write, draw and annotate.
I found OneNote to be very useful in group meetings. You can type anywhere on the screen, which is a freedom not afforded by typically more structured word processors. It is as flexible as writing on a piece of paper, but with features that can only be expected on a computer.
