A Survey of Electronic Note-Taking Behavior in Information and Library Science Student

by Fox, Jackson

Abstract (Summary)
A survey of graduate students in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was conducted to evaluate the adoption of digital technology for note-taking in classrooms. Previous work has demonstrated that note-taking is an effective tool for information processing. Furthermore, digital tools could increase the utility of notes by allowing students to better organize information, retrieve information, and integrate external information sources. Results of the survey indicate that while students recognize digital notes as possessing positive attributes, adoption of digital note-taking is hampered by immature software and hardware tools.
