Access to class notes is determined upon students’ medical documentation and an assessment of their condition and needs. If access to class notes is approved as an accommodation, then the accommodation will be indicated on the letter that the students provide to their professors. It is the responsibility of the professor to find a notetaker for the class; this is a confidential process, so the notetaker will not know the student who has requested the notes.
To best assist a student who qualifies for notetaking assistance on the basis of medical documentation, Glean empowers students to have complete control of their notetaking.
Glean helps students take notes in class by recording lectures in real time through a web application on a student’s computer and/or mobile device. The downloadable application includes providing space for typed notes, color-coding or tagging audio segments, and importing presentation slides and photos. Students have the ability to go back to a saved session after a lecture and synthesize the information to make their own set of notes for review and test preparation.
Students who qualify for this accommodation should not hesitate to ask for assistance from the Academic Resource Center to learn how to use this resource.
