I have really messy writing when it comes to writing notes for lectures and a really slow typer but I record my lectures on my phone but its low quality. is there an app or any other resources that can help me? also what electronics would you recommend a tablet or laptop to bring with me to lectures. thanks
For iPhone, I used Audio Class Notes. But right now I am switching to the recording function in OneNote (so I am recording using laptop) and that quality is alright as well. I would also turn up the volume by using Audacity (because for most of the time if you are sitting at the back of the lecture hall it’s very difficult to have a clear recording).
I bring a laptop to lectures if I know that the professor is going to cover a lot (for me, it’s usually law courses). But I will bring a tablet to lectures if I don’t have to take a lot of notes for that class (or if I have the lecture slides beforehand). I will then take notes using my stylus instead of typing.
