It is important to remember that note taking style is individual. However, these tips might give you some ideas on how to get the most out of it:

  • Write down key points – there is no need to write everything.
  • Put down your own ideas.
  • Allows for doing research after class.
  • Brainstorm – diagrams, images.
  • Audio recording – allows for review after class.
  • Publish on PDP.
  • Publishing on PDP means you can share with others.
  • Tags on PDP, such as module names.
  • Uploading and tagging on PDP means your notes are organised and clear.

Refer back to all your notes and you can also refer back to these points.
