Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Office Lens

Description: 

Office Lens allows the user to take a picture of a photo, document, or whiteboard. Then, the image is processed so that text can be seen clearly and can easily be exported into a OneNote or many other Microsoft Applications (OneDrive, PowerPoint, Outlook, Word), saved as a PDF or image or sent in an email.

What We Like: 
  • Quick and easy document, image, whiteboard scanner
  • Automatically finds doc edges or optimizes images for best results
  • Can add hand-written notes or annotations within a book easily to OneNote or other locations (keeping all information in one place)
Limitations: 
  • None that we've discovered yet!
Classroom Application: 
Have students annotate a text and then upload notes to their OneNote Class Notebook
Capture notes from a whiteboard and save to a OneNote Class Notebook
