Note-sharing helps to address disability-related barriers that impact some students' ability to take comprehensive notes while fully engaging in the classroom experience. Any student can sign up to be note-sharer. If we do not already have a note-provider in our system, we will also recruit volunteer peer note-sharers by reaching out to classes where one is needed.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer note-sharer, then we encourage you to sign up through the Note Provider (to GIVE notes) module in Clockwork.
