Microsoft has released an OSX version of OneNote and it is free to download. Many students use the Windows version, which has also been made freely available.
For more details about the features of OneNote for OSX, watch the video below or visit their website.
The Microsoft Office blog also has a good features list for OneNote for OSX.
Over spring break, Student Computing Support re-imaged the computers in the Addlestone Library to implement changes that speed up how long it takes to log into the computers in the computer lab. As a result you won’t spend as long waiting to get started on your work when you come here to study and do your assignments.
There is a known compatibility issue with OAKS and Google Chrome versions 32 and 33 (beta). With Google Chrome versions 32 and 33 (beta), pop-up windows are not working properly within OAKS. These pop-up windows are used frequently throughout the system. The common behavior is that a window will display “Loading….”, but then times out to a blank window. If you experience these issues, we recommend that you try another web browser such as Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer. Desire2Learn is looking into the issue, however, they do not currently have a time frame for a resolution.
