Do you find it hard to recruit and manage peer notetakers? Could offering an alternative to human notetakers resolve some efficiency issues within your department and bring a noticeable difference to your students?
Throughout this free webinar, Korey Singleton (Assistive Technology Initiative Manager) and Robert Starr (Program Support and AT Specialist) from George Mason University will share their experiences of a recent note-taking software pilot, focusing on their reasoning behind the trial, the process and implementation of the new software and how it helped create a better learning experience for their students.
In particular, Korey and Robert will discuss how they assessed and trained students, how they achieved student adoption of Sonocent and how they tracked whether the students were satisfied and benefiting from the solution, in comparison to other accommodations the department already offered.
This webinar also includes a quick software demonstration and details of how you can trial Sonocent for free at your institution.
- How note-taking technology can create learning independence and improve student satisfaction with their accommodations
- How offering an alternative accommodation can reduce the recruitment and management burden of human notetakers
- What are the best practices for implementing Sonocent with a free full-semester trial
- What solutions are offered by Sonocent for both students and support staff
Korey will be joined by his colleague, Robert Starr, Program Support and AT Specialist at George Mason University.
