3. After successfully signing into OneNote, click Create a Class Notebook and complete the 7 steps

4. Step 1: What's the name of your class?

Enter the name you wish to have for all of your students for their notebook

5. Step 2: Notebook Overview

OneNote will describe the three group sections of the Class Notebook: Collaboration Space, Content Library, and Student Notebooks

6. (Optional) Step 3: Add another teacher

The "teacher" role has privileges that students do not in the Class Notebook, including adding content to the Content Library, and having access to Student Notebooks. If your course has more than one instructor, assign them role as Teacher on this screen.

7. Step 4: Add Student Names

Ensure that the "Automatically add students from your LMS as they access this notebook." radio button is selected, then click Next

8. Step 5: Design Student Spaces

Create sections that will appear in every student's notebook. OneNote provides default sections. These can be removed by deselecting the checkbox. You can create new sections by clicking on Add more. Once completed, click Next.

9. Step 6: Preview

Toggle between the Teacher's notebook and the Student's notebook to ensure the spaces are set-up properly. If they are, click Create.

10. Step 7: Done

OneNote will begin the process to create the notebooks for the students in your course. This process can take anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes, depending on the size of your course.

Step 3. Ensure that the link is visible to students in your Blackboard course.

After creating the OneNote Class Notebook your students will not have immediate access to the notebook. Students will have to click on the Class Notebook link in your Blackboard course in order to complete the process of adding the notebook to their OneDrive.
