Replay in OneNote: A Gamechanger for the Classroom

OneNote for Windows 10 app has a new feature called Replay, which records the Digital Ink that is input into OneNote and creates a movie like animation that can allow the teacher to pause and play at any time during the lesson.

The Replay function is very useful as it allows the teacher to elaborate on key points or highlight certain aspects of a Mathematical problem during class. Students will find this quite useful when looking to a model answer and trying to apply this to a new question.

Replay allows the student to develop their understanding of a problem and its solution by allowing the student time to follow and replay the development of a concept or problem at their own pace, in their own time. The result is nothing short of a gamechanger.

The Replay function in OneNote makes simultaneous equations a breeze as it frees up the teacher to assist students during the lesson by playing the solution multiple times and discussing key points in the solution. It can allow the classroom to be flipped with ease.

Where is it?

Replay lives in the View Tab in OneNote.

    Would be even better if the replay kept on repeating. If I replay how to answer a complicated maths question, students might want to keep checking it as they do their work. Leaving it replaying on repeat would help.
