[Athen] Question regarding Tutoring Tracking Software

We've been trying to implement FlashNotes at UC Irvine and it has been a
challenge getting "buy-in" by Professors/Instructors. The primary area of
contention is how the instructor has to agree to have their notes submitted
into FlashNotes, which will then be made available for all students. They
have been challenging the accuracy of the notes, to the "intellectual
property" aspect of the notes to name a few issues.

We saw a program called " Flash Notes" at the AHEAD conference in Sacramento
that might do what you want. www.flashnotes.com <http://www.flashnotes.com>

Subject: [Athen] Question regarding Tutoring Tracking Software

Afternoon all!

I provide technology support and recommendations to my unit and we are
currently investigating technology solutions for tracking the effectiveness
of our note-takers. Ideally, we would like a system that:

1. Allows us to track students who are "matched" with note-takers.

2. Allow notetakers to "submit" notes online which will then be
automatically "distributed" to the student, or at the minimum, placed in a
virtual container for the appropriate student/recipient to access when they
log in.

3. Allow us to generate reports based on how frequently note-takers
log-in, submit notes, etc.

I have no clue if such a thing exists - but I can say we already use a
program that tracks accommodations for us (AIM) and although it has some
features for note-taking, I don't believe it will have all the "bells and
whistles" we want.

Also, do you know how your department is tracking note-takers? Any

Thanks, as always, for your insight! Also, feel free to pass this question
to others who might have some input!
