Study skills development.

With our software, students develop transferable study skills for education and the workplace.

Is text always best.?

From note taking to revision and essay composition, the traditional approach to studying has been to reach straight for pen and paper.

That may work for some students. But for many, writing can be a barrier to learning.

With Sonocent Audio Notetaker, students can come at learning from a different angle by working with multiple types of media in one workspace.

    Do more with what you hear

    Audio Notetaker makes speech a tangible thing by visualizing audio as chunks, phrase-by-phrase. This makes it far easier to navigate and edit audio recordings.


Use it for note taking

Note taking is difficult. There is simply too much to do at one.

But with Audio Notetaker, students can break note taking down into manageable steps.

First, they record and make annotations. Second, they review the material at their own pace.

Use it for brainstorming and group work

Bouncing ideas around with coursemates can spark off fresh associations when tackling all sorts of assignments.

With our software, students can capture all these ideas as a recording, and highlight the best ones with a click.

Plus they can insert photos of mindmaps and diagrams on the whiteboard alongside the audio to which they relate.
