Let’s get started with a quick overview.

Attached files can be in PDF, Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. All are supported so there is no need to covert file formats.

Did you know? There is a bonus feature that allows you to keep selected content hidden from students. Put assignments in the Teacher Only section to keep students from working too far ahead. Then distribute the pages when you are ready to release them. In this way, the teacher can control pacing but still have all assignments added to the Notebook ahead of time.
