Using OneNote and a Wacom pen tablet to make digital handwritten notes

Share:

Microsoft OneNote is a versatile digital notebook that is available anytime, anywhere. It’s  available as a traditional desktop app, a web app, a mobile app and a simplified version comes pre-installed with Windows 10. Paired with a Wacom pen tablet, the functionality of OneNote is enhanced so you can include handwritten notes, sketches, diagrams, equations and more.

In the video below, UK-based medical student Shivani shows us how she uses a One by Wacom pen tablet with Microsoft OneNote to handwrite, store, search and share her school notes. You may even get a glimpse of a day in the life of a med student by watching Shiv’s video.

Shivani (Shiv), hails from the West Midlands area in the UK and is medical student in her final year of studies. She hopes to become a general practitioner, but is open to other career options in the medical field because family and work/life balance are things she has always valued. Shivani will be the first doctor in her family and we wish her well on her healthcare journey.
