What you like about it?Makes the use of OneNote possible on the iPad.
What you don’t like about it?You cannot open a OneNote Notebook for collective editing (yet). Some video formats don't open.
How would you use this app with your students?Lesson delivery / repository of lesson information and files.
With Outline, you can use OneNote for lesson planning and lesson delivery on the iPad (which is not possible with the Microsoft OneNote app since it is not available on the UAE Apple App Store). Not only do the OneNote pages show up as they do on Microsoft OneNote, you can also open links and files you insert/place on a OneNote page. If you place the OneNote Notebook in DropBox, changes sync quite quickly as well (quicker than with the SkyDrive). An added bonus is that the design looks really good.
What you like about it?Presents OneNote notebooks almost as OneNote does. Attached Word docs open in Pages and are editable.
What you don’t like about it?Except the attachments, nothing can be edited or annotated - it's just a reader. Once you've opened a document in Pages, you can't open it again from Outline.
How would you use this app with your students?Possibly to link a bunch of Word documents which students would then work on in Pages.
Tips you can share on its use?Not at this stage.
If you’ve got a lot of materials in OneNote, as we have at SHC, this might be one way to keep using them. However, it’s not very practical without the ability to annotate. Even with the ability to open Word documents, that’s not much use if you can’t open them again in OneNote after you’ve edited them (or after students have completed the tasks/exercises).
What you like about it?Opens and syncs directly from Dropbox.
Currently this app cannot be used to edit OneNote files, but it syncs with Dropbox and displays all your OneNote 2010 notes as it would in MS OneNote directly from Dropbox, just like we at the ADWC (HCT) have been using OneNote through the network drive. However, the publisher announced that they will update the app in the summer with editing capabilities. I think this is good news since it means we can continue using this direct delivery and sharing method. If the publisher delivers its promise, then Outline can be a must-have app for those who have lots of OneNote lesson files.
