What are class or lecture notes?
Class or lecture notes is a document with information you write down, during and after a class or lecture.
Why create class notes?
By writing down what you learn during a class or lecture, you help yourself to assimilate new information. And by organizing your notes in a structured way, you'll always be able to quickly find and refer to information you need. Craft's 'notes within notes' structure allows you to organize your knowledge in the most logical, easy-to-find way. You can also easily share your notes with other students.
When should you write your class notes?
It's a good idea to make notes during class or in lectures, while the information is fresh. After class, you can review your notes, add details, investigate anything you don't fully understand, and organize the notes in a way which works for you.
What should your class notes contain?
The contents of your class notes will depend entirely upon the content of the class. You should aim to capture and organize key insights, questions, resources and actions. They can form a basis for study, later.
