Provision of notes from a peer notetaker is provided for qualifying students. This service is primarily designed for real-time sessions (in-person classes, and live/asynchronous sessions while remote), as time is often a limitation. This service is designed to supplement a student's own notetaking in their course, and is not a replacement for attendance.
It is helpful to know how the course is designed when requesting notes, as courses vary significantly. By requesting notes for appropriate courses, you can help us with providing a timely and efficient service. The course timetable has been updated to include more information about the times and teaching styles of courses.
Once requested in A11y, we will be able to review and approve any matches with interested student note-takers, and reach out to the rosters if there is no immediate interest from other enrolled students. As we utilize this new system, you will be able to request a notetaker (if approved for this accommodation) in the portal at any time, but our office will still be processing and approving matches during our normal business hours.
