All the new Microsoft DMOCs contain a trainer package file formatted as an Office OneNote file. Unfortunately, as far as I’m aware, this format is available (according to the MCT Program’s EULA) only for the trainer.
Anyway, what I wanted to do was to be able to transfer and synchronize the OneNote content of a MOC course to my iPad, in order to be able to study while travelling. This can be done quite easily and the usage can be extended for any other information stored as OneNote file(s).
The software and other prerequisites needed to fulfill this are:
- Office OneNote 2010 (at least Office 2010 Standard Edition) installed on the computer.
- OneNote installed on the iPad / iPhone
- a .NET Passport account (I used the same attached to my MCP/MCT account)
First of all install the Microsoft OneNote app on your iDevice. You should be able to find it in iTunes Store, available as a different application both for iPhone and iPad.
Then, in Office OneNote 2010, click on the Share this Notebook button and then add your .NET passport account details and choose to share it on Web (technically, this will be done via Sky-Drive), but trim the security permissions of the Sky-Drive item carefully.
To see the screens above, I think you have to be logged in your Sky Drive account; otherwise you are going to see something similar to the following screenshot:
On your iPad, open the Microsoft OneNote app, tap the synchronization/settings icon and add the same .NET Passport account. Then, from Notebook Settings select which of your notebooks (already synchronized via Sky Drive) you want to synchronize.
Repeat the operation on other iDevice(s) that you want to synchronize. For example you can see bellow some OneNote content synchronized between an iPad and an iPhone.
Also, the iDevice app allows you to edit / modify OneNote files :). The only disadvantage that I noticed is that the synchronization can take some time based on you internet connection speed.
