Use OneNote to record meetings, conference calls, classes, interviews, focus groups, brainstorm sessions, personal journals, and anything else you don’t want to forget. Even better, any notes you type while recording are synchronized to the audio. Can’t remember exactly what the instructor or presenter said? Just go to the note and listen again.
