Poll | Recruiting Peer Notetakers the “Biggest Shortcoming” of Note-Taking Support.

During our AccessText webinar on the shortcomings of traditional note-taking support on May 23, we took a snapshot revealing how support professionals feel about the current state of play.
And of the 186 professionals who responded to the survey, nearly one in three (30.1%) say that the time it takes to recruit peer notetakers places an unacceptably heavy burden on themselves and their team.
Meanwhile, 28.5% say that their main concern is the quality of notes provided by peer notetakers, with legibility a particular issue.
By comparison, 17.2% of respondents cited the time they spend chasing up notes from peer notetakers as the biggest issue with note-taking support, while 13.4% were most concerned about students being unable to take notes independently.
