SOU provides notetaking accommodations through one of two possible methods: loan of a Livescribe smart pen or by choosing a notetaking service (below).

It is the student's responsibility to submit a notetaker request at least 10 days prior to the first class.
Later requests will be filled in the order in which they are received.

To request notetaking services for a class, log in to AIMS and register for services in your classes.
Make sure to select "Notetaker" for the classes you need. If you need assistance in logging in, please see the tutorials page.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How are notes supplied?

Notes may be supplied by any of the following methods:

  • Lecture notes supplied by 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. We sign you up for a notetaker through this service. You'll get an email from the service letting you know a notetaker has been assigned and sending you the link to your account.

How do I record my notes for a notetaking service?

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.

When you want notes for a class, record the class and upload it to the notetaking service. Once uploaded, the service will create your notes. They will email you when notes are ready, and you can view and download them from their website.

How soon will I receive my notes?

Once you have signed up for a service, you will upload the class recording to their website. Typed notes will be delivered to you within 48 hours.

What if I have a problem?

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.
