Note Taking as an International Student

Foreign students

Note taking is never easy (as you can see from my previous posts on the topic: Note Taking Strategies for College and All of Us are Smarter than Any of Us) and those difficulties are only compounded for foreign students – actually anyone that doesn’t speak the language of the lecture as their mother tongue, and anyone that has a learning disability.

All students benefit from lecture recordings, but especially those that have language or learning issues. The problem is that most lectures aren’t recorded – and if a recording is available it is never the lecture you just attended . Until now you were at the mercy of the school and  the schools ability to provide access to recorded lectures. Even if the lecture was recorded,  it will be a recording of some previous semester.

If you are a foreign student, have a language problem or a learning disability – LectureMonkey can change your life at school. You control your own fate – just do the recording yourself using LectureMonkey. You can listen to lectures at your own pace, and mark important sections for later review – exactly what you need to help you learn better and get better grades. Not only that – everyone in the class benefits. Your recordings and comments will benefit your classmates – and get you recognized as the class hero for recording the lecture. All you need is an iPhone and the LectureMonkey app.


About Jacob Ukelson

blog (mostly) about my work and technology. So far I have been lucky enough to have been working on things I consider fun and with really top notch people. I have worked in both large companies (IBM) and small companies (ActionBase, ConicIT, Dapper, eXeedTechnologies). eXeed was establish to remedy a failure of the VC model in Israel – most VCs were monetary investors, but most companies needed not just money – they needed operational and business guidance. That is what we provide at eXeed – not just an investment but also our time and skills as seasoned software executives. I have taken on various titles – CTO, VP Products, VP BizDev – but throughout my career a constant focus has been on technologymarket fit, aka customer development. Unique breakthrough technology is a start, but the product must solve real business problems. It needs to be something customers can understand, relate to and will want to buy. I have been doing this for 20 years for software products in companies both large and small.
