Questions related to what students write during lectures. This tag should be used for questions about student note-taking in lectures and for questions about any way a student can store the information obtained during a lesson. Notes can be anything from pencil and paper to audio recording to videos provided by the instructor.

Some students aren't very effective in retaining information about what they learn in class, whether lecture or more active learning. Traditionally, students make some kind of notations, perhaps copying what the professor writes or says. Some students try to rely on memory alone, usually ineffectively. Use this tag for questions that can give students better habits on recording course materials, no matter what the medium. Paper has the advantage that it doesn't require a device to read. Electronic notations are compact. There are tradeoffs. But the key is good student study habits.
