OneNote is a great choice, though it doesn’t exactly fit your qualification as being a lightweight resource.

I’d also like to offer a different solution: Scrivener

Not only can Scrivener be used for taking notes, your son could also use it for writing papers and capturing project-specific research. The Windows version isn’t as polished as the Mac version, but it is pretty solid. I would create a new project for each course, then use the folder structure to organize the classes. The index card feature would be helpful for studying, building flash cards. It has an outline view that could be very handy.

Take a look at the features, here:
