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.
