Office with a Stylus: The final words (Video and Sway!)


When you have a Tablet PC such as the Surface Pro 3, it is really easy to get stuck using OneNote for everything. After all, the two are a perfect match. But – there are plenty of other applications out there that can very effectively leverage the stylus. In this four part series I’m going to look at Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook, giving real life examples of how I have used the stylus in the software for my classes, and then a quick how to guide if you want to get out and give it a go.

I finished the series with the last article, but also made the promise of a video and a Sway – so here they are!

The first is a nearly 10 minute video that goes through everything I have covered in this blog series, with examples and step by step how to demonstrations of annotating in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.  The video is embedded below, or you can access it on YouTube at:

The second is a Sway – This has most of the content from the four blog articles, a link to the video and some additional content as well so that OneNote is also covered.  I also had a bit of fun making some additional graphics to illustrate it all using OneNote.

It is designed to be a stand alone resource that anyone could use to get familiar with the use of the Stylus in Microsoft Office.
