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
