We use the Samson Go Mic as the microphone which directly records into
the Audio Notetaker program. The students computer powers the microphone
so there is no need for a battery. We have had great success with this.
Students really like the fact that the microphone is quite compact.

Hi all

Just to poke my nose in J The Audio Notetaker / Digital Recorder combo
is recommended and used quite heavily in the UK. Most assessment centres
recommend the Olympus DM 670, as it has an indexing facility built in
(99 index marks per file). The student can make a new index mark every
time the lecturer goes forward to a new slide, and then import it into
Audio Notetaker – which will automatically split the files into sections
by using the index marks.

Hi Linda - wondering if you would be so kind as to clarify... the
digital recorder is a standalone unit and then the student imports the
audio file to Sonocent Audio Notetaker and 'indexes' it upon review, or
is it connected directly for live recording / indexing? Also, if you
don't mind, what make/model have you settled on for the best pick-up for

> At the Scarborough campus of the Univ. of Toronto I am recommending

bursary funding for the Sonocent Audio NOtetaker on a regular basis, for
students who benefit from the multi-modal aspect of capturing the audio
file from the lecture, the Power point, and your notes or your volunteer
notetakers, all synchronized and sequenced in the same document. We are
using a digital recorder that is designed for lecture use, 50 meter
recording distance, rather than phone apps, for many people, to obtain
higher quality audio, esp. in the first and 2nd year larger lecture hall
