Taking a seminar style class, sometimes there is a handout on which I might take notes. Rest of the times I use paper and even with the handout many useful topics are elucidated and references alluded to (authors, titles), so notes are really worthwhile. We sit around a conference table.
Currently I aim to type my notes when I get home and put in a binder because I will be taking an exam in 18 to 24 months on the topic. But sometimes I never get to the reviewing and the typing and sometimes I even don't exactly know where I put the notes...Least I am honest.
I am poor but fast typist and terrible speller. I am thinking that I could bring lap top and type during class with it on my lap. The table is too high for typing. Might the clicking bother my classmates, and the professor? I have been out of school so long that I do not know the etiquette. I could ask in advance--classmates would say ok because they would want my notes (or so they think) and the Prof would be flattered. If I had a smart words program that might help a bit with the typing. Any thoughts?
I have seen ads for a smart notebook where you write or draw by hand on special surface with special pen and then whatever you write you can upload to computer and then tidy it up and print it out if you want. Any thoughts?
I also meet with people at work and have to take notes which I have been doing by hand. I wonder if a lap top would work or the smart notebook. Any thoughts?
