I was having a discussion at weekend and got into the discussion of client meeting and UI/UX workshops and got into discussing the great blogs by the Cooper teams. I am sure as part of your academic reading lists Alan Cooper, “The Inmates are Running the Asylum” and “About Face” will be cited..
Here are three great blog posts from the Cooper team demonstrating how they use Microsoft OneNote as their design tool of choice:
OneNote for Interaction Designers
OneNote for Interaction Designers: The Nuts and Bolts
OneNote for IxD Research and Presentation
Like any technology don't expect to be expert overnight and it will obviously takes some practice before you have the confidence to do this to the scale and quality of the blogs above but I’d encourage you all to try using OneNote and Windows 8 version of OneNote.
I use Expression Blend Sketchflow projects for my user interaction design - I wouldn't be without sketchflow maps.
Yes Sketchflow is awesome! for those who haven't seen sketchflow check out the following tutorials www.microsoft.com/.../creating-navigation.aspx
