Access Center Notetaking FAQ's
Q: What format of notes can I take?
A: There are several formats of notes that you can utilize!
Check with the Notetaking Coordinator to find out what works best for you and the student. Some options are, but not limited to:
- Electronic- You can type your notes on your personal laptop or scan (PDF) hand written notes
- NCR Paper- Great for people who prefer to use a pen and paper, or classes that have a lot of pictures and graphs. NCR paper makes a duplicate of every page you write on, so there is a copy for you and one for the student. Remember to press hard and don’t use a fine tipped pen/pencil. Please be advised that this form of note sharing requires the approval of the Notetaking Coordinator and the students Access Advisor.
Q: How do I submit my notes to the student?
A: There are several ways to submit your notes, but the Access Center strongly encourages students to submit notes via MyAccess
- Electronic- Upload directly into MyAccess
- NCR Paper- Ripe out the copy and give the student the copy at the end of class. This form of note sharing requires the approval of the Notetaking Coordinator.
Q: What happens if I am ill or miss class for another reason?
A: Even if you aren’t in class you are still responsible for getting notes for the student.
If you are unable to attend class please arrange to have a classmate take notes and share them with you. You will still be responsible for submitting the notes via your normal method. Make sure that the person you ask for notes is taking legible and detailed notes.
Q: What happens if I drop the class I am taking notes for?
A: Contact the Access Center immediately!
In the event that you can no longer take notes for an assigned class, please let us know immediately so that we can take steps to ensure that the student can get notes from somewhere else. It’s critical that you tell us ASAP.
