"My awards are lovely. I love to show them of." Doris Roberts

You may not be as showy as Doris Robert's of Everyone Love's Raymond fame, but, you may have done something really amazing using Adobe products to teach or teaching Adobe products to students. If you have, why don't you submit your work, lesson plan or student's work in the Adobe Educators' Choice Awards. Prizes include Mac computers, iPads and Creative Cloud subscriptions, oh and of course gloating like Doris Roberts! The competition closes on October 5th, and you can take a look at other people's entries for inspiration here.

I've been thinking, what are some really cool features of OneNote? A simple Google search came up with this hilarious video, which is today's segway into some super sized tips and tricks for OneNote 2010.

Using template to maximise your minutes...
As you would have seen in the video above, you can use templates to colour code your notes. If you use OneNote 2010 for taking minutes in a meeting, templates can become your greatest ally. When you add a new pageinside a section:

1. Click the drop down arrow next to New Page.
2. Select Page Templates.
3. The Templates - Add a page bar will open allowing you to try different templates

What's even better, is that it remembers your favourites, so that if you use a particular template regularly, it is only one click away!!

"When I'm in the field, when I'm working, I keep very careful notes. I wear big shirts with big breast pockets, and I carry in them two little spiral notebooks. " Peter Matthiessen

Like Peter Matthiessen, I love taking notes! But, unlike Peter Matthiessen, I use Microsoft OneNote, instead of a big ol' notepad. I love OneNote because of its integration with other Office products, SharePoint and Internet Explorer. Check out this video below, and let us know if you would like some more tips and tricks for OneNote.

Not everyone has access to the Adobe Master Collection across campus, but that doesn't mean to can't edit videos! With CS6 you can now edit videos within Photoshop. Amazing! Check out this video below.
