Register for Note Taking Services

  • From the ClockWork homepage, select 'Course Notes'.

Choosing a Note Taker

After you have registered your classes for Note Taking Services, volunteer note takers will be recruited by SAS in each class you have indicated. Volunteers will upload a sample of their notes for you to view and choose from. 

  • From the ClockWork homepage, select 'Course Notes'.
  • Login using your CCID and password.
  • Select the current term and 'Refresh list'.
  • If a note taker is available for a course you will see the button 'Select a notetaker' in the 'Notetaker availability' column of your course list. Select it to browse through the sample notes.
  • Once you have decided on a note taker, select 'Choose this notetaker'.
You have to choose a note taker by the end of the second month of Fall/Winter term and by the end of the first month of Spring/Summer term. After you choose a note taker in the system, ClockWork will send an automated notification to the volunteer whose notes you have chosen. The message will inform the volunteer that their notes were selected and will request they upload notes on a regular basis.
