The app creates private notebooks that are shared between the student and the teacher. No one else has access to these notebooks, but the teacher can access and edit any of the notebooks for students in their class at any time. The app also creates a content library. This is a view only Notebook that students can access handouts or other course materials. Finally, there is also a collaboration notebook where anyone in the class can share, edit and collaborate together.
The OneNote Class Notebook Creator does a lot to simplify the workflow of dealing with digital documents in the classroom, especially seeing how easy it is to set up. All you do is enter some basic information and let the tool do the hard work - i.e. create the notebooks and share them with all your students.
To get started, you need your 365 administrator to add the OneNote Class Notebook Creator app to add the app to your SharePoint site so that you can access it. Details on how they can do that are right here. Once it has been enabled, you can log in to your Office 365 account and get started.
