Research on Note Taking

Note taking Research chart

Note taking during lectures is an important part of  being a student. Research shows that reviewing notes is one of the best ways to succeed. Taking your own notes and reviewing is best, but almost as good is reviewing notes even if you don’t take them yourself. Here is good overview on some of the research on note taking.

LectureMonkey makes note taking easy and automated:

1. Completely automatic notes – set down your iPhone and let LectureMonkey record the lecture automatically. Review the lecture using the skip and fast talk features,

2. Automatic notes with bookmarks – record the lecture and add your own bookmarks directly using your iPhone, spending a couple of minutes after class to add a quick comment to each bookmark. In addition to using the skip and fast talk features you can review lectures by skipping to bookmarks to hear the important points,

3. Automatic notes with comments – record the lecture and add your own comments while the lecture is being recorded directly on your iPhone, or use your laptop.

Of course you can always add bookmarks and comments later through LectureMonkey. As well as your own bookmarks and comments, you’ll benefit from your classmates’ comments through the “live comment “feature. So not only do you benefit from your own notes,  everyone can chip in and benefit from the “wisdom of the class”.

When class is over  you’ll all have a completely accurate  set of notes with all the important points recorded – what could be better than that?


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.
