New OneNote embed parters – and Screencast

Today we are excited to announce two new partners that can now embed into the OneNote canvas by pasting a URL.  This integration is enabled now, and will work on the latest OneNote clients:


Flat.IO – the popular Online music notation software that also allows collaboration.  Music teachers celebrate - now you can embed this to use interactively inside of OneNote!


Screencast – now you can easily embed videos created by TechSmith’s Screencast directly in OneNote.Music.jpg
