Note takers are peer volunteers from the student's class who are willing to share their notes. Volunteer note takers may provide notes using a variety of formats. Some note takers review and type their notes before passing them to the student. Others use a notebook containing numbered carbonless paper. The note taker gives the student the copy at the end of the class period. When more than one student in the class requires notes the note taker may be asked to use a smart pen which allows electronic sharing of notes and audio. Students should request note takers by completing the online Notetaker Form.
