Accommodations & Services
Disability Resources offers two different options for note taking accommodations.
Peer Note Taking
A peer note taker is a volunteer student that is willing to share a copy of their notes from the classes lecture or lab.
Follow these steps to request a peer note taker:
Students must attend classes in order to get notes, except in very rare situations when an absence has been previously approved by the Disability Resources specialist.
A smart pen is a device that records the lecture and synchronizes that recording with the notes the student takes.
This provides a targeted, specific way to review notes that also provides the student with exact recall of the information given by the instructor.
Disability Resources has a limited number of Smart Pens available for student use. Smart Pen users will receive training, supplies, and support for notifying their instructors about recording lectures.
Talk with your DR specialist if you’re interested in using a Smart Pen.
