      Record personal notes and dictations
      Review slidesnotes & audio in one application, then share with others
    • 3. Who’s recording?
      Many disabled students:
      dyslexic students with poor auditory processing makes note-taking difficult
      Physical impairment of note-taking e.g. dyspraxia, RSI
      visually impaired students
      And many other groups…
      Usually by individual students as college/tutor led recording is rare in UK although podcasting becoming more common
    • 4. Audio Recording has moved on…

    • 6. Audio Notetaker enables students to interact with audio as if it were text
      Audio can be represented like blocks of text
    • 7. The Sonocent Audio Notetaker Concept
      Audio can be manipulated like text...
      ...cut, copy, paste
      ... formatted
    • 8. How does Audio Notetaker work?
      speech
      pause in speech
      Audio Notetaker analyses a digital recording and identifies where the speaker pauses, then represents this visually.
    • 9. What does Audio Notetaker help students do?
      Manage and organise their recordings
      Review notes alongside slides and visual information
      Annotate audio recordings with colour, notes and images
      Edit and export audio, including Podcasts to MP3 player, CDs etc
      Support revision and research by easier access to notes and recordings
    • 10. Remember: Good notes are not a verbatim version of the speaker.
      The student learns by interpreting what they have heard and putting it into their own words…. even if that is just a few key words to jog their memory
