Note Request Procedures

You must be registered with D&A and approved by your advisor for a note-taker accommodation before you can use the note-taking system. Not sure if you have an accommodation for a note-taker? Click on "Main Menu" and "Accommodation Letters". Login to see the accommodations that have been approved for you. If you have questions or concerns about your accommodations contact your Access Coordinator.



If you are approved for a note-taker and want to use this module to obtain your notes please follow the steps below.


Step 1

You must indicate that you require a note-taker. Click on the 'Courses / Notes' link in the main menu, then click on 'No - change this' beside each course for which you require a note-taker.


Step 2

If a note-taker is available for a course you will see a button called 'select a note-taker' in the 'note-taker availability' column of your course list. Click on the button to view the list of available note-takers (note-takers are identified by numbers so you will not know the identity of the note-taker and they will not know your identity). You are able to browse sample notes that each note-taker has uploaded in order to help you make your decision. If there are no note-takers available for a specific course you may ask your instructor to make an announcement in class to find a volunteer note-takers. Students who want to be a volunteer note-taker can apply via the D&A website:


Step 3

Once you have selected a note-taker, you are able to download the notes that have been uploaded by your note-taker. You will receive an automated email when a new copy of notes are uploaded. Click on the 'Notes' button beside the course you wish to download notes for. You should download your notes at least once per week. If you wait until the night before a test or exam, the system could be unavailable and no one will be able to assist you after hours.
