Just nine months ago the OneNote team released the OneNote Class Notebook app, which has already had a huge impact in classrooms around the world. The app allows instructors to quickly set up a personal section for each student, a content library for handouts and a collaboration space for lessons and creative activities—all within one powerful notebook. Since then, we’ve continued to listen to your feedback and continued to improve the OneNote Class Notebook experience so we can best serve teachers needs when and where they need it in the classroom to organize and collaborate with students.
Today, we are delighted to announce that OneNote Class Notebook support for the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard is now available for public preview. This means instructors will be able to use OneNote Class Notebooks with any LTI-compliant Learning Management System (LMS). This integration streamlines the notebook creation process even further, and makes the OneNote Class Notebook easily accessible alongside other learning materials within the LMS.
Instructors, as well as IT administrators, can easily enable the app for their course in Blackboard, Brightspace, Canvas, Moodle or any other compliant LMS. Teachers will then be able to launch the OneNote Class Notebook LTI app from their LMS course page and walk through the notebook creation process directly within their LMS. Once a teacher has finished creating a notebook, it is added directly to their course for the students to access. All the rich content available in OneNote is now one click closer for students and teachers.

With the announcement of LTI support for OneNote and also Office Mix, Microsoft is committed to supporting open standards and interoperability, so we can work with others to provide the most seamless experience for our users. OneNote Class Notebook support for LTI will be in public preview for the summer season and is planned to be available for productive use ahead of the fall school year.
