Seeking and accessing notes:

You must be approved by your advisor for a notetaker accommodation before you can use the note-taking system. The following procedures only apply to you if you have been approved for a note-taking accommodation.

Step 1

You must indicate that you require a note-taker for each course that you would like to receive notes for. Click on the 'Courses / Notes' link in the main menu to the left, then click on 'No - change this' beside each course for which you require a note-taker.

Step 2

If a note-taker is available for a course you will see a button called 'select a notetaker' in the 'Notetaker availability' column of your course list. Click on the button to view the list of available notetakers. You are able to browse sample notes that each notetaker has uploaded in order to help you make your decision.

Step 3

Once you have selected a notetaker, you are able to download the notes that have been uploaded by your notetaker. Click on the 'Notes' button beside the course you wish to download notes for. Note that you should download your notes at least once per week. If you wait until the night before a test or exam, the system could be unavailable and no one will be able to assist you after hours.

PLEASE NOTE: If no students have volunteered or you are dissatisfied with your current notetaker, you might try to help find a notetaker yourself:

Recruit a new notetaker yourself.
  1. Ask your instructor if he/she can provide you with lecture notes as an alternative to the volunteer notetaker.
  2. Suggest to your instructor that he/she make an announcement in class indicating that a notetaker is required.
