Notetaker Training

Thank you for your willingness to take class notes for a student who needs a work study notetaker. This online training program will help you understand the purpose of note-taking services, explain your responsibilities as a work study notetaker, and provide you with strategies for taking effective notes. Please complete these training modules as soon as you have been hired as a notetaker.


The training program contains three modules:

  • Module 1: Why Provide Note-taking Services?
  • Module 2: Code of Ethics
  • Module 3: Taking Good Notes

Each module begins with a lecture and a brief quiz. You must complete the quiz before proceeding to the next module. Unfortunately, the system cannot save your answers until you have completed each module quiz. If you must stop the quiz, you will have to retake the quiz.

After completing all three modules, you will have the opportunity to register as a noteteaker. The Academic Resource Center will then contact you with the name of the student for whom you are taking notes.

The Academic Resource Center will also email the student with your name, email address, and phone number. Notes should be typed and emailed as soon as possible, preferably the same class day. The student will be instructed to contact you to make arrangements for getting the notes from you should they not receive them in a timely fashion.
