How to request a note taker and FAQ’s
How do I request a note-taker?
Confirm on your Accommodation Form for Faculty that student notetaking is one of your accommodations.
Complete the Student Notetaking Request Form for each course in which you require a note taker.
When a notetaker is found, you will be notified by the DRC Program Coordinator
What if a student notetaker does not come forward?
This could happen so we suggest you take the following steps:
Speak to your professor and ask if he/she will make another announcement to the class.
If you're comfortable doing so, ask a classmate if he/she would be willing to apply as a student note-taker.
Should these steps not result in a student note-taker coming forward within a week or two, please contact your program Advisor to explore other options.
How do I access my notes?
You can access your notes from Blackboard Connect. Please access your instructions by clicking on this link Self-Enrol to Receive Notes. **If you have difficulty accessing the notes on Connect - Blackboard, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
