Notetaker Training

Thank you for volunteering to serve as a notetaker for a peer in your class. As a volunteer notetaker please fill out the form below to register with our office. Within one business day, the training course will appear in your Desire2Learn account and you can complete the 10 minute training.

This online program will help you understand the purpose of note-taking services, clarify your responsibilities as a note-taker, and provide you with strategies for taking effective notes. Please complete these training modules as soon as possible. At the completion of the training, you will formally register as a note-taker and, at the end of the semester, you will receive a gift certificate from the CU-Boulder Bookstore in thanks for providing notes.

After you have completed the training, you will fill out the note-taking application form including the name of the student receiving the notes. Shortly after, you will receive a confirmation email with contact information for the student to provide notes to. Please set up a communication plan with one another and determine how the notes will be taken and delivered.

For more information or if you experience technical problems with this training program, email  

Returning Notetaker?

Students that have previously served as a volunteer notetaker are asked to complete the training as a refresher each semester. Thank you for your repeated service to our university community.
