Notes may be supplied by any of the following methods:
- Lecture notes supplied by the instructor
- Class notes recorded by the student and typed by an outside service
How do I sign up for a notetaking service?
Request notetaking in AIMS, as usual. Schedule an appointment with Disability Resources Assistive Technology Specialist to create a Notetaking Express account and to receive a tutorial on how to use the notetaking service of your choice.

Notes can be recorded using your laptop, tablet, smart phone, Livescribe pen, or other recording devices. If you need a recording device, contact Disability Resources.

If the notes you are receiving are inadequate, illegible, or late, please email the notetaking service. If you need more help, email the Notetaking Coordinator as soon as possible.
Do I still have to attend class?
YES! YOU are responsible for recording the class and uploading into the notetaking service.
