OneNote is hardly the only note-taking software with online syncing, but Microsoft’s solution is especially conducive to schoolwork. You can organize your work into notebooks, each with its own sections and pages, which makes sense for separating notes from each class.
Beyond text, OneNote lets you create checklists, bullet points, audio snippets, and free-form drawing. It’s especially useful if you have a device with a stylus, such as Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3, as it can help replace your paper notebooks. The fact that OneNote supports a wide range of platforms—including the desktop, the web and most mobile operating systems—doesn’t hurt.
