Is it possible to set up a class notebook with students outside my school?

I teach a virtual learning network class (several schools across the country joining my school for video conferences) and it would be  great to use OneNote for it, but I don't know if its possible to do so outside my organisation, or with schools that don't use O365. 

 

Any ideas?

You should be able to invite external users to your OneNote file even if they are external - and even if they don't use O365.

Maybe, but I want them to actually have a section in the class notebook, not share the notebook. When I tested it with a known non-organisational email address like gmail, using 'add or remove students,' it didnt recognise the address.

Ah, then no. The solution is designed to work within the class, and that assumes that each class member has an Office 365 account within your tenant.
