About This Class

Hi guys, and welcome to my SkillShare course on making the most of OneNote to manage a content creation project such as a blog, YouTube channel or similar. The course will take you through every step of organising content, through to publication, using a range of OneNote templates and teach you the skills neededĀ in creating the structures as well as the principles behind the routines and practices that are encouraged.

We will use my course example notebook which you are welcome to open and copy content and ideas from. We will also be looking at how to organise the collection of your ideas and inspirations in OneNote in a way that allows you to access them later and reinvest them back into your creative process time and again.

We will cover:

  • Structures to create using sections, section groups, pages...
  • Adding tables and table styles, images, tasks, tags, to do listsā€¦
  • UsingĀ  templates to simplify repetitive tasks and create workflows that build your productivity...

With that in mind, here is theĀ course notebook to help you along

1. Introduction: Hi guys, I'm Anthony. And in this course about OneNote, I built on my previous beginner course, how to organize everything in one note by looking at the very specific use case of how to manage your blog or your YouTube channel or any other project really, in OneNote. For that reason, I consider this more of an intermediate course on OneNote as the beginner information in the previous course will be really useful. However, don't worry if you don't have that because we'll be demonstrating along the way how the use of tables and templates, formatting tools, links, and other scales can be used to build the system that we're going to put in place. 2. Creating Your System: Let's take a look at how we're going to build our system. Well, there's some key principles for us that are important. And the first of those is that we want to be able to capture and keep everything we learned. Secondly, we want to belts a cross reference dot content for links and find those unique things between them that we notice, this is how we generate our own content. Then when we want to later create that content, we want something that helps us plan effectively and forecast how we're going to use it over time. And finally, something that allows us to track over time how our content has succeeded. Well, let's look at that in a bit more detail. Initially, we want to system that takes all of the various sources of information that we consume and allows us then to organize them in a logical way so that everything we experienced is then ready for later use, not just captured, we want something that allows us to access that content and reorganize it in a way that helps facilitate our creative thinking. Then when we publish it, we want a system that maximizes its use and reuse so that we can reuse that content over and over again. Now, I'm taking some ideas both from David islands, GTD or getting things done system, but also Tiago fortes ideas on this initial system. He calls para or PAR, is how I'm organizing the top level of this notebook. He organized his things in four ways. First of all, as a project which he defines as a series of tasks linked to a girl with a deadline. Secondly, areas, which he considers areas of responsibility as a sphere of activity with the standard to be maintained over time. Thirdly, a resource being a topic or theme of ongoing interest. And then lastly, an archive which includes inactive items from the other three categories. So let's see here how that applies to my notebook. Well, I've put together a notebook to show you, which pulls all of the various ideas from these different systems together, as well as some of the best thinking I found online at the moment. And lots of the routines that I've come up with over many years of using OneNote and other organizational tools to help create project systems. So in this example we see that parallel or PAR system at its top level. And we're going to be working in one notebook. Now over time I've used different notebooks for each of these things and has an archive notebook, right? Moving active projects too. But I've gradually realized for this type of work, it's really helpful to have things in one notebook. And that's for one reason. Because when you make links, you can make links between different sections, section groups, and pages within a notebook that are much harder to do across different notebooks. So this is a single notebook will be looking at, and this is the front contents page of it. Up here you can see I've got these four areas, projects, area's resources and archive. And down here, the links to them. If I turn those, well, if you've taken my initial course on OneNote, you'll already know. But if you're not sure, then when you right-click on a section grouped like this, you have the option to copy link to section group. Let's do that. And then I'm going to do control V to paste. I could right click and choose paste as well here, but I've chosen the option, and you can see that it makes an initial lincoln. When I click that link, it jumped straight to that area. Let's go back again. So I can do that for each level y, if I numbered these sections like this, we can reorganize manually. Section groups will always be alphanumeric. So here I need to put a one at the beginning in order to get that projects to be at the beginning. And that's something to bear in mind as well. Something we're trying to do here is create not just a document or reference material, but something that is a working tool. So for example, when I go into one of these areas, the first link at the top is a link back to the contents page. We can see that when I hover over it, it shows us that link. Again. How do I do that? Well, just like on a section group, I can right-click on the name of the page over here and choose Copy link to page. And that's just paste that here to see it. And you can see it makes a link as well that goes back in the site way. So for all of these areas, there is a link you can see that takes me immediately back to the front page. And I'm sure you got a quick idea that the way I did initially used color as well, so that each of these sections, groups, when I go into them, has a distinctive color. So a great front-page contents area could have just these four areas or however you choose to organize them. You can see the iv then replicated those links down the side and then used the subsection groups of each of those two start to flesh out things that are important for our project. We're gonna be focusing mainly on number one projects, on number three resources. 3. Project Layouts: Let's take a closer look at the two areas we're going to be focusing on a project and use of resources. Now Tiago forties PAR or power system. You can see I've used at this top level, but that's where the relationship ends here. And everything else I'm going to show you is based on my own creation rather than borrowing from somebody else's, we're going to be looking at resources. But initially, I wanted to show you the project we're going to be working with because then it will make more sense. Once I click on projects, you can see it brings us forward to a second set of menus here for courses, EdTech music, least dot Education, untold stories. And these are for ongoing projects that I'm working with currently, I have a top level menu set up for them in the same way that I have those section groups up. Haha, now if you haven't taken my author OneNote course and I'll show how to make a section great. Then you would right-click up on this menu area. And instead of choosing New section, which would look like the hat, let's just delete that. You would right-click and choose New Section group. And then a section group gives you this type of section, which means that you can then put sections and inside it, if I click on that, it goes through to a whole new section, area of its own where you can make sections using the plus button or the new section to lack. That's come out of that and we'll right-click on that. We can rename it if we're going to keep it. But actually we're just going to do to, to stay tell you that we go. So these four section groups at the top are reflected in the four titles here. And if I right-click on one and choose Copy link to section group, just like we did before. You can see that's how that link would be made. And then from the home menu, I have the option to change the fonts and text and other features of the text as well. So where are we going? Well, as well as being a teacher, I run a blog and website and YouTube channel with the title EdTech music. So when I click on this link, we'll be focusing just on that project. And you can see when we move to that project level, a layout that I really like then is this one. Let me talk you through it. So again, I've got that link that would take me back. And having a pot clink for every section is a really useful thing to have. I then have the key big links to the areas for this project that you can see are replicated up there. That's whether sections have come from. And then underneath a purpose statement. Not to me, a purpose statement for a project. It's an ongoing project, is really important in helping you sustain momentum with it. Here you can see I've outlined six key ideas for me that, uh, why I'm maintaining this project. And then above it, let's have a look at these section groups. Now I think section groups are a really good way to organize the top strands of your project rather than sections because these allow expandability and future growth. So EdTech music, I said, is a YouTube channel and it's supported by social media feeds and also a newsletter, all of which come from a website. So here at the top I have videos, newsletters, social and website, records, finance. And then from this point, the standard setups that I would normally have, I then have anything else that is relevant to this particular project. So in this case, music digital textbook, because I'm creating a monster, a record of all the resources that I generate through all the others. So often number 56789 and so on, could be anything else that's useful. It just so happens in this context, but that's what I need. We're going to have a look through each of these separately. But I think it's really important to consider how would you organize the top level of any of these tools? Let's check me by going and looking at another projects we're gonna back up with the projects link the eye creates it. And let's go into a different project, leased or education. And here we can see the same structure in place. So a structure like this and choosing one for yourself that you define is a really good principle to halfway, no matter what project you're dealing with, you have some standard layouts that help you because no matter which projects you go into that the sine and so easy to navigate. So before we go into lookout ways that we can organize the actual content, let's consider why we're doing this. Well, in my example, this is a YouTube channel that I maintain full music teachers. So it contains two things. It contains and websites reviews, as well as how to guides on how to use those facilities for teachers. And it also contains short book reviews of books that I think are helpful for teachers to know about. So let's review what we've just covered. We first of all thought about how we organize our projects and our resources on I floated the idea that having a single notebook in one note, he's a really good way to do it because it allows you to link across the different areas and that's something we'll come back to later many times. The second question was, how would you organize the big areas of your project or your blog or your channel for every project. And here's the example from my high-tech music example. The I think makes it really clear that I have these first five areas that I reuse and consider for yourself. Very rarely is a project, just the output. There's a lot of steps and processes in place behind it. And if you can replicate those each time and have a standard system that will hold you in good stead. Onenote with sections and section groups, I think can really enhance that. I'm thirdly, how will you maintain the momentum of your project? What would your purpose statements entail? So I showed you here my purpose statements for this EdTech Music Project, the overtime, have helped me continue the momentum of it when I start to get excited and have crazy ideas that take me off in different directions. These are the statements that keep me true to the original intention of what I meant to do. Okay, let's move on and consider how tracking our resources may help us with this. 4. Resource Layouts: Right now we've got a basic idea of my example project. Let's go and look at resources. So we use our projects linked to go back up and out, and the same with contents to get to our top level. And then we're interested in resources. So once inside the resources area, you can see my uniform approach to menu system carried on again. Here I've got a set of separate section groups that capture all the different types of content that I consider, resources that I come across. And we're going to have a look at a few of these and see how in the context of my projects they failed to read and then reflect on how they might fit yours. So the first area we're going to look at his books. Remember, we can go from the link at the top or the link in the menu. Now, as I said before a launch, parts of the continent I produce is reflections on readings for teachers as well as music content for teachers. So here, keeping a clear record of what I read is really important to me. It straight away come through on to the section about books. There's also one for authors and then tags. Let's look at these in turn. So here we've come to the page or digital minimalism by Cal Newport down the side. When we look, we can see the books that I've recently read and now I've alphabetized them there to help me. I'm because I make this page on the day I start the book. We can see when I read it lost again, a standard layout is my friend haha. So I have some standard links that are useful to me. A screenshot of the book itself, a key quote to this important to me on a snapshot of the author. And then below that, a summary. Some key points that I've typed in myself that my feedback for myself on what I've read and then quotes from the book. And using the highlighting tools built into OneNote. If we go to draw, then we have those up haha, as well as from the Home tab. I can use the highlighting tools here as well. And you can see it's quite a long page, so there's a lot of those and this is a standard layout that I use for everything I rate. How do I do this? Well, let me click on Add page and you'll see when I add a blank page, this layout comes up automatically because I've set it as a template. And this is something that this version of one note that's just called OneNote is really good full. There's another version of OneNote that you can also access on desktop computers. And that is OneNote for Windows ten, which looks more like the mobile version. But in this one, if I go to Insert, then I have page templates. And when I click on the page templates button, it lets me choose all sorts of existing layouts that have been pre-created and populate it. Or I can go down here, pick a template you want to use for all new pages in the current section. I'm, I can choose Save Current pages, a template if I don't want to choose from that list. So let's choose Save Current pages, a template, and then the pop-up that comes up, it will let me name this template and I can tick the tick box for set has default template for new pages in the current section. And if I do that, Then every new page that scientists in books will have this layout that's really useful and it's leveraging that power of templates that makes this approach with OneNote really powerful. So let's go back to the page we were looking at the full here today's digital minimalism. And now you can see how I've populated that template view with the things that are really useful. Something that sprite to do is to have a link to the author. So let me click on cal Newport's nine. I'll hear it jumps across to the author's tab where you can see I have a number of authors that I've started to counsel login this y, I wish I had started seeing enough on a page for him on here. We then have, first of all, a little biography that's taken from GoodReads directly, as well as links to useful links about the author and that books. A1, my notebook as well. Let's look at hyperlinks for minutes. Here. I've got website, but I haven't actually done anything with it. Let's highlights it like that. And then I can either go to the insert menu and then choose Link. Or I can use the shortcut Control and k, which I buy favor I must admit. And let's click on that. And it brings up this link dialogue where Here it's showing me the, it's already populated the text that displays the word websites, I can put in the address or I can go to a link in any other notebook. Well, let me now go straight to the website we want. So this is county puts website. Let me highlight that. I'm copied the leg. And then here, let me paste the link in that. I'm now, once I've accepted that, now this link here, let me hover over it. You go will take me straight to that website. So having the text predefined the I can then I have my own links to Israeli handy. Let's use the link to digital minimalism to go straight back to that page as well. And you can see here, having a template for books and I template layout for authors is a really effective way to allow me to track bugs, those things. So that covers linking to external websites. But let's look at how all these internal links I might, if I go down here, let's just remove the link to that book on remake the link to digital minimalism. Now I can make links much like a Wiki. Let me use the double square brackets tool and then retype the name and then make the double close bracket, so immediately converts into a link. Let's try this for a page that doesn't exist yet. So I'm going to type my double open brackets. And then at the end put double closed square brackets as well. And you can see it's converted it to a link. But now because that page didn't already exist, it's made that page here in the side menu. Let me click on that. And you can see it's automatically used my page layout template for the orifice area. Now, books and authors might be completely irrelevant to the type of content that you use to stimulate your creativity, whatever the case. I hope I've shown that this type of system is a really nice way to organize content that can be cross-referenced. Let's go back to countably posts page and we'll use the real length. Let's just delete not one to go back to digital minimalism. And then see what else we can do with this system. Well, initially, we discussed creating a system where one of our ambitions was to be able to form links between all of the different types of contents we experience as a way to fuel our creativity. So let me come back up a level from here back to our top resource level. And within here, something that we've now created as well, these packets, it's replicated across the top here, but packets is a word that I've come across in lots of different reading. The sort of defines bringing these things together into small areas of information. So let me click on pockets now. And in here you can see I've only got one section of the movement. That's fine. There's room for growth. But down on the side, my packets are the different ideas about the common themes that turn up in the things that I'm reading and experiencing and listening to. So when I look at this one, this particular packet that I made in October of that year, rehearsed challenging advents in advance. So I was starting to gather all the different things from my reading and watching and listening that talked about the power of actually mental models really in terms of creating content and rehearsing something before it happens as a way to be more prepared. So I've got a quick summary. I've written myself links to direct to other packets and then links to the sources which has leave books and author pages inside my books and office areas. And I hope again, this, this idea of books and reading may not be relevant at all to the way that you create creative ideas. But in my context, you can see the power of having a single notebook with everything accessible via links within one notebook is a really good way to fuel that ideas as a way to help me to draw all my thinking together on one idea before I then create some content-based on it, let's review what we've covered in this lesson. First of all, we've been thinking about how will we organize everything we experience in a way that lets us use it? Later, I showed you the example I have of the way that I organized all of the content that I experience into one note using these big section groups, such as the example books that we looked at in more detail that allows me to capture that content really easily. And then how will we capture each type of content? And I shared with you the section I had for books and the way that I captured using a template, book information and author information. And then with that, how will we utilize templates to help you streamline? Well, that is the icon for templates to remind you. And using the very system that I'm talking about, it just made me aware a minute ago of this great quote, Civilization advances by extending the number of important operations which we can perform without thinking of them by Alfred North Whitehead. And I think that's really appropriate because it makes us think about if our system works with us, such as using templates in OneNote to set up the different sections that we're going to need over and over and over again. Then it really helps us to move forward without Newton to do any extra work ourselves. The system helps us. We'll come back to templating and how we can use this again like so. And finally for this lesson, how will you record the links between the different areas of your learning? And in this way, I showed you the link section that I've set up in this particular notebook that really helps me to find the links between the different areas of all the things that I've experienced. And pull those links together in one area using a section or different sections and pages that link off using that double square bracket so to the original locations as well. So the double square brackets, it will again something that's really a baby Hamdi. 5. Blog or Video Overviews: Okay, we finally made it. We've organized ourself to the nth degree. We've gathered everything that inspires and interests us Reggie, to create. Let's have a look now, natural projects. So we're going to go into videos which is linked from haha because it's also this first section, great payoff. And where we go in the first top, we deal with this first section is index. And I would encourage anyone to have a master index of all the content they create. Now, lots of tools such as notion, for example, can automate this layout. I quite like doing it manually. I must admit it helps me keep track of everything. So here we've got a table and we haven't looked at tables particularly yet. If we scroll down a little bit, you can see it's an ongoing table. And in here we have a master video number, publication date, the details with the link to the page about that content, the URL to access it online, and then some links to the linked contacts across other areas of the notebook. And with this, you can see I'm quite a fan of color escapes. Let's have a look at the way we can organize color schemes for a minute. So when we go to view, first of all, we have ruled or light where we can control lines or unlike nature or great or graph paper back ground. So that's quite nice. If you've got a device with a touch screen on a pencil maybe, then you've got page colors next to it here. Page colors is great because you can change the background color of the page as well. And you can see in addition to that, the other thing I've done is when inserting the table, I've then changed the color scheme of the table. Let's just have a look at doing that. To start with, we'll make a new page with the new page tool. Let's just choose a page color. So we'll go for something more visible, will go for that yellow color. And then let's go to insert and choose table. Now here we can decide to strike out how many rows and columns we want less than so to table like that. And we'll drag it out So little bit. Now if you've already accessed my introduction to OneNote course, then you will know all about this already. If not, it's a good skill to just take on quickly. Let's highlight the entire table. And now that we're on the table, this new toolbar up here called table as a pet, and this gives us the option to shite. So I'm gonna go for a very pale yellow color for the background. So this top row, I'm going to go for a much darker yellow color. And I must admit when I do that, if we go for number title a, we go just to give some titles and then highlight those. Then I'm gonna go back to home. And here, choose a slightly bigger font size perhaps. And then let's also make this text white so that it stands out against dark, darker color. Well, we've got it, we could make it bold site time. So now we've got a color scheme for the background, which is also reflected in tones of the table cells and also the main row at the top, that is the header row. Now that we know how to work with tables, let's go back to the index page. And just look at what we have here in a little more detail. Clicking on any of the linked content down here will either take a strike to that website or to the book. Remember, we've done the same thing with the double brackets, where we can access any of the columns n from any area of our Notebook. And the links here, oh, page links. So let's choose one and go to it. Let's try this one teaching musical using Audacity pot one. So clicking on that link as taken me straight to the page, full bought video. And that's great because this page is to do with everything to do with the SPD. I've stopped to finish, but it's also jumped us along from what was the index top haha, all the way along to the published top here, because the things in the index are all the published videos. Now we're going to use sections in a completely new way. Hey, up here, instead of just keeping pages in sections the way we might do in a filing cabinets. Now, we're going to use these as buckets to move content between. So across the top, I have one video ideas, one book ideas because I tend to include a small book entry in each video as well to scripting three, resourcing for filming, five, editing, six schedules on then seven published. And you can see the right the number of videos in this project that have been published since I began this project. Now, this way of working, using this as buckets that content moves between these really nice because it allows you to drag the pages from one section to the next as needed. So if I work by diamond these, you can see some of them are currently empty because at the moment, these there's nothing in the sections. The buckets are empty. If I go to scripting, we can see as far you've things haha, currently being scripted. If I go all the way back to book ideas, then this five book extracts being worked on at the moment. And if I go even further back to video ideas, There's a huge number of pages in haha, the OCB being prepared ready to move into other buckets when I need them. And in this way, my runway is always a little bit fall. It's never completely empty of ideas. I'm never staring at a completely blank page. So having this system where when something is ready, you can grab it and drag it into the next section as you need it. It means when I want to progress and idea, I can drop the page full-out idea and move it along into the next area into scripting. And once I finished scripting, I can then move it up to resourcing. And you can see gradually over time, there it is in filming, it will work its way all the way up to where all the finished video content is. Let's move dot back where it came from to video ideas. So I really like this way of using sections in one note, not in a filing cabinet style, but as in buckets, that content can be dragged between unmoved up on its journey towards publication. And the last thing I want to discuss with you as part of this lesson is this previous screen tab, scrapbook. So at the beginning I have two tabs, indexed scrapbook that don't appear linked to the others. Because remember when you right-click on something on choose section color. Such as color that I'm I've set these two to be different and that's because scrapbooks sits outside of this process. If I click on scrapbook, Haha, now you can see that this is a collection of content that I've snapshotted and grabbed from various places. That is, things that I will want to consider to use. So here I've snapshotted from a video, a menu system that someone's using. And I've put, I really like white text on transparent rights from very readable. Look at how to do this in luma fusion. That's a tip for me for the future. I'm down here this video as well, the picture in picture with diagonal screen imbedded. I like that nice alternative to one over the other. Look at how to mimic the layout. So there's a set of pages here that you can see all things I've grabbed from different locations. And this would be large over time, but gradually I strip it down as I need those things. And here I've made some notes and x2 with text on set myself a task. So this is a tick box that can be ticked or untick. How do I do that? Well, it's Control or Command one depending on if you're on a PC or a Mac. But it's also up here on the home menu under tags, you can see we've got this tag menu. And here I've got this first option to do, which is controlled and one on a PC. As I said, the I can use to make and myself task. So hea, because it's looking at how to do this, I am literally setting myself a task and so I want to complete. This will feed into something. It's not a scrapbook that will not be used. It's a task I've set myself so I can flick through my pages and find those tasks. But there's also another way I can access tasks. I've set myself, let's do that quickly now to find all my completed tasks. So I'll go up to the fine tags tool here, which expands the side menu. And I'm gonna click on Show Only unchecked items. I've seen the things that haven't been ticked Dog. I'm going to search in this section. By this section, remember, I mean this particular scrapbook area. And let's refresh the results. And there they are. The two items from this page. And clicking them will take me straight to this page. So if they were more within these pages, date appear here as well. And that's a really nice way to see what things you've set for yourself that you'd like to solve. There's a whole section on using the to-do feature in my starter course on OneNote. But I think this is enough to get you going and see the power of what you can do with it. Let's review our takeaways from this lesson. So first of all, how would you organize the content or episodes, or articles or videos that you're creating. Think about the table structure and tools that I showed you in the example. How would you organize the content creation process? So perhaps consider the sections being used as buckets. In the example I showed you, where gradually pages of each piece of content move up by being dragged from one to the other, all the way to published. And then lastly, how will you track outstanding tasks you've set yourself? So the use of the to-do tool within OneNote is a really great way to set tick box targets. And you can see the shortcut Control one as well. Lets you do that. Remember, ion is a really good way to then be able to view all the things, the Arctic boxes that have not been ticked, the off things you've set yourself, but not yet achieved. 6. Episode or Article Templating: Okay, let's look at an example and tree. Let's go and click on this one. Now, this is what each entry in the notebook will look like. And I've done this with a template and I strongly suggest you consider the power of templating as we discussed earlier, the key idea here is to try to get everything to do with this particular blog post or video, or episode or article onto one page so that it can be moved around as one-page. So let's have a look at some of the things that this template contains. The it's called the initial number and then the title. And at the top are standard, a link back to the video index and a link to my Amazon affiliate links area as well, and then publication details at the top. So here a small table contains the embedded video because OneNote allows you to embed video direct from sources. So by clicking that it would play on the page I've put in the link directly to the content online and said I can keep track of the backing track so I use within each tool, there's the backing track links there as well as the track that I actually used for this video. And then down the right-hand side, any links to other resources or researcher I use the link to the content within the notebook that I needed. So for example, here it's a book, any affiliate links I used. So there's the link to my Amazon affiliate accounts for this book, as well as the link that goes direct to the documents I need haha below that. Then in a slightly different color scheme, you can see we've got the actual content and the content I choose to separate out. This is a refined version of examples that I've seen many people do and have published articles, especially on YouTube around the ways to do this. Here's my process. So first of all, I would have the hook, which would be the initial content to make people interested on me a couple of seconds, five to ten seconds of content with an idea. And you can see here I separate the columns into script B-roll needed and then actions I need to carry out. And here you can see I've used that task or to do tool again. So they tick boxes next to all of the separate tasks. So here, Editing recordings, making rounds and ostinato patterns going on sidewalks, sound walks and story compositions, which is nonsense if you're not particularly into music, but really tells people this is what we are going to be talking about. So in this instance, it's not really setting out a problem. It's more explaining the content. Then I would have my title sequence with music and then the actual intro to the video proper. So this would be some standard Blurb and I've got my standard blurb, Dad, I tend to say a version of the beginning of absolutely every video, which means I might as well make it part of the templates that I remember. And then following that, a sentence that is the intro to today subjects. So you can see the way I've used the different colors here to signal what is standard titles on what needs to change each time. After the intro, I'm then onto the value, which is the actual things that I'm going to be talking about and sharing with my audience. Parts of the same color scheme. I'm within that each particular aspect of the video. It sounds slightly darker purple heading with the constants. Now, you can write as much or as little as you like here. Sometimes I actually script it fully and right out. And, you know, that might be something that some people like to do equally when it's something like this particular topic where I know it really well because I do it quite regularly. All I need to do is jump myself down a couple of words for each aspect with next to my tick box. And that's enough to get me going and talking about what I need to talk about. So there's those particular parts of the video and you can see for each in this B-roll column, I've set myself the task of what B-roll I need to fill and tick it off once it's done as well. And then if I go down below that, often I might have a bonus section. So if I'm using an affiliate link as a way to monetize the video, then it may be that that as part of the bonus, I'll advertise it here. I advertise the Samson Meteor mnemonic that I use to record all my content. And then what I've increasingly started doing this then having a reading section talking about a book, teach him I'd be interested in reading. And you can see I've talked about one's the vitamins section that then again another standard section, the outro or the ending if you like, where I've got Stan to things that I need to remember to cite, as well as perhaps a space for optional content. And thought therefore covers the whole process of the video. Start to finish as my scripts. And as I say, you can put as much or as little cones I need to in each box as you like, because each cell will expand and contract to fill whatever text you puts in it. And then with thinking about keeping all of the content together, then when it comes to publishing this next section that you can see, I've given a slightly different theme, then contains the copy for those things. So here went because they say is for a YouTube channel, I've then got a standard set of texts that I use is the description. Here it has a heading for the book mentioned because I will often mentioned a book, the video notes with the summary of the video as well as the timestamps that people might be interested in. A brief biography, links to other stuff and courses, ways to connect with me on a brief disclaimer about affiliate links. And with that as well, I know I'm also going to need some tags to make the content findable. So in that way, I've got some stanza tags that are already part of the templates. That is, those first ones that I know will always be useful. And then after that, some that are more specific to this particular video which I've added on once I've published the video, I know immediately the next thing I'm going to want to do is share it onto social. And I'll use my social channels to just amplify it genuinely. But in addition to that, the other thing I'm going to want to do these Post-it into groups that I'm part of. The I note specifically those people would be interested in. So immediately out that I've written my video notes as a coffee, I would then tweak it and rewrite it as a social posts copy to pie over here with the link. And then I have the groups that I'm going to share it to already asked a tick box list, haha. Then when I click on each one and go to that site and post it, I can then tick it off that I've already done it. So a really smooth process that has all of the links I need in one place. In addition to that, a publishing checklist. So underneath certain information about the preset. So I will need to use the certain things I need to add to the video over time, such as end cards, tags, captions. If I want to add it to a play list, if I'm going to schedule VDI release on again, I've borrowed some of these things from other people online that I've seen really refine this process by really like having that checklist built in. And then the post publishing check list as well. That includes things like how to get to my website, to my newsletter, to my social channels, buffer and things like that. And in this way, it means that absolutely everything to do with this piece of content that I've created can be accessed and managed from this one page. And when I pick up this page and drag it between these buckets, I know that everything associated with this video will travel with it with thoughts in mind, the summary for this lesson is really brief. How would you ensure all the information relating to a piece of content can be accessed together. Consider the example I've shown you where one-page can collect absolutely everything to do with one piece of media, your publishing. And then related to that very closely, how will you use tables, color, and formatting to organize your content? 7. Episode Links: Let's take a look at how we can best utilize the links features in one note, that's efficient. Here I'll one-page post content has first of all the publication details. Then the hook or problem. Following the interests sequence, we would have an intro or welcome, which would lead into the value, the actual content of what we're delivering eventually then the bonus or surprise content leading into the outright or ending where we have the call to action. And following that, we would have the description tags on social actions. And then eventually any checklists that we might include. You may have other better systems. And indeed things that I've missed out from that. Let's start by looking at some of the links we can use within OneNote. So we already know we can use double square brackets like this to make a link to another page. We can also link out to web pages using either the can shortcut Control K or the link button haha within the insert menu. And for example, when we do that, let's click on this backing track link YouTube free checks on here. It leads me straight through to the studio page within my channel where all of the free audio tracks are available. Thoughts particularly useful because I can access it every time I need to go out on a track to be used with a video. And it also means I then conjunct down the track I've used within not recording. Next to that is a slightly different link. Let me click on this link and you can see that this one wants to open a file location. So if when I click Yes, it now opens with in my OneDrive parts of my resource folder, my audio samples folder, which by clicking in the address bar, you can see that's the address of that folder. And let's go and find out how that was created. So if I right-click on this and choose Edit link, then we will see that what I actually did was paste that address that into this location. And then hey, Tai Chi. And it allowed me to make a folder link rather than a web-based leg. Now this can be particularly useful for all sorts of things here, the PowerPoint that I would use as part of this video, I've linked to it there as well. And that's the similar thing using a folder location. Let's look at some other legs. I told you earlier that web sites such as YouTube could be embedded directly into OneNote. Let's prove that. I'm going to paste the URL to the page. And you can see immediately the address changes to show the title and the thumbnail image, which if I click, will then begin playing on the pages. So today we carry on looking at the Freesound editor and record or, or udacity, looking at how to make round an ostinato patterns, as well as going on sidewalks and make story-based compositions. And so a good example of how you can use one note to add content that can be played within the page. And that's really helpful, not just haha, but also in my scrapbook area where I can add links to videos and make notes around them. And also if we come back out of all of this, I'm going to our resource area then for these services that I'm using such as video quotes, podcasts on channels. It means I can paste video links from providers such as YouTube or Vimeo and a range of others on their videos can be embedded. Strike on the page where I can make notes around them as well. That's look a little further. When I go down past the actual contents of the page, you can see I have the links directly to the social media groups that I'm going to post to. I'm in the description for the video. I then have the links already put in for all of the descriptive concept that I want to use to lead directs to connect with me or find out more about me. I'm gonna go down towards my publishing checklists. Then down here you can see I've a resource area, the office services to let me check things like thumbnail quality, cycle accuracy, and things like that that can be placed in the template and then automatically available with every new video wall post you create. So let's summarize this lesson. We've learned about how to create web page links on about how to create folder links to local folders, both using the links button or controlled cable Command K, depending on if you're on PC or Mac. We've also learned how to make Wiki style legs, where you use the double square brackets before an off to text to lead to a page with that name. And we've learned about embedding content from its link, such as videos from providers like YouTube or Vimeo. So the question at the end of this lesson is, how will you use these page links on web links to help you access related tools quickly. 8. Other App Versions: Let's take a look at the other app versions available. So we know about the OneNote app that we're using here. It has a proper ribbon menu, looks very much like other Office applications and was previously called OneNote 2016. In addition to this, there is also this version of OneNote, which is called OneNote for Windows ten or one note for Mach, depending on what you're accessing it on. And it has a completely alternative way of accessing content. So here instead of a ribbon, we have a much more strict back toolbar. Again, I can click on these areas of unopened up their tools to access the menu system. Unlike the previous version, where I could access pages down the right town side, my notebooks down the left-hand side here. When I click on the left hand navigation bar, you can see it opens this notebook in the side area. And if I click on the dropdown arrow, it'll let me open other notebooks I have open to see what's inside each section. I now have to expand each drop-down area like this, and it's a very vertical experience. So within EdTech music here, I can go to contents here, then into videos, sky to index. And this is all looking really similar, unfamiliar. However, it's a much more vertical experience in this nested format rather than the horizontal sections and section groups view we hadn't previously. The OneNote for Windows ten or Mac app is a more modern app, and therefore, synchronization is arguably faster and smoother and more reliable. However, you do lose a lot of facility by using this version. So we'll know this one looks very similar across all devices and has been cooled to universal app at times. For that reason, you do lose some function. So the beautiful templating facility that we're very happy to be able to access in the OneNote other app we don't have in this currently you can't make templates. And for that reason alone, I choose to use the other version for the bulk of my work. However, this is so fast and smooth, uneasy that for lots of people, it will be a really useful alternative to half. And you may use both because your notebooks can synchronize between the two versions without any problems. The other version of OneNote that's worth knowing about is the version for mobile devices. Here I am on my iPhone viewing the same contents page of the notebook. Let's back out of this and we can see the same vertical menu that we saw on the universal app or the app for Windows ten or Mac OS. And if I go into projects vertically, you can see the same thing. Feasible. Let's go into the same project we've been viewing and to the contents page. And this all looks very similar. Likewise, I can click on the links here and choose to open them, and it will offer me the same experience. Let's go into videos. And to look at the same video we've been looking at. And you can see I can access all of the same contents. I'm clicking within it gives me the same tools to appoint, except a mobile version, scrolling back and forth horizontally gives me my formatting tools to use with the keyboard. And from the top right-hand corner, I have the scribble button, which allows me then to annotate with my finger using any of these highlighting or text tools. And then the ellipsis gives me further options are only available through that route on my labile. Again, by clicking in text, I bring up the keyboard tool again, and it's the two tools on the left-hand side of that menu that we're interested at the moment. Really useful on mobile. The first is camera. And if I click on clamp camera, it will allow me either to insert a picture from my photo library on my device or take a picture, both of which are really nice way to be able to scrapbook things that I find all content that I want to use later. And the second of those two tools is the microphone button. And if I allow access to my microphone, I can then straight out start recording an audio note straight into one note. This is a really great feature on desktop, but on mobile outs, huge value. There we go. Now that I've stopped recording, you can see that audio note appears on the page and let's click on it. One of the options available to me is play system, my microphone. I can then straight out start recording an audio note straight into OneNote. So lots of functionality that I get through the mobile version as well as the desktop without losing any of the features. But having this touch screen facility that I get on my mobile that I probably don't have all my other devices. So now that we're aware of the great flexibility of OneNote to be available on different platforms and different devices and synchronized across all of them. The question at the end of this lesson is, how will you use the mobile or universal apps to help your workflow? 9. Summary: Okay, let's summarize this whole clause. So firstly, what OneNote tools have we learnt to use? Well, we particularly focused on tables and formatting tables effectively to maximize how they can be used. We've also looked at using section groups, I'm sections effectively to allow us to make scalability and spaces that will grow into using sections to FOR buckets as well. We've also looked at making page links using the double square brackets, much like a Wiki, and also making web links to external files on external websites. And my personal favorite, we've really focused on templates as well, on how to make templates for different sections so that your pages automatically appear in the format you want to. We've also looked at setting up tasks and using the to-do tool, which remember is controlled them one. Now what skills if we identified across the class? Well, we've looked at setting up systems that expand easily as your ideas garage. We've looked at setting up systems that can be replicated for different project. And we've used templating to support repetitive tasks and achieve continuity. And lastly, what principles of organization, if we identified that we might want to carry forward? Well, the two big ones for me, maintaining links between your inspiration and your creations. And secondly, to learn the tool to maximize its return on your work. So that's it. Thank you very much for being part of my course. I hope you've had a five-star experience. If you feel you've had anything less, Please leave me a comment below in the notes so that I can improve it for others. Now, don't forget the course notebook is available as part of the description, and that has the templates that I've used in this course as well as all my other one no courses that you might like to take as well. Please leave me a review as that helps others to find this course. And I look forward to seeing you on other courses.
