Brief course description
Are you a note-taker or a talker? Some people like to be able to speak their notes, using software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking. Others hate it – especially people with an accent that the software can’t understand! There are times when you need to be able to write or type your notes. Perhaps when interviewing another person (the software won’t know their way of speaking) or when in a lecture or seminar.
Plenty of people need to be able to take notes the old-fashioned way. Taking notes quickly and accurately is a valuable skill. It’s brilliant for journalists and students but it is also a huge bonus to anyone who enjoys studying online courses, attending webinars, or just jotting down ideas. It is also a vital skill for professionals who need to take instructions from clients. It makes the workload easier and the stress lighter.
Shorthand used to be one way of vastly improving your ability to take notes but it has fallen out of favor of late because it doesn’t work on computers. We all have smartphones, tablets, and/or laptops now and those squiggles don’t transfer to electronic devices! Yet the ability to do digital note-taking has become more and more important to many of us.
