Step 1: Request faculty notification letters for the semester and make sure that “Notetaking Services” is selected.
Once a student has been approved for a peer notetaker as an accommodation and they have requested their accommodation letters for specific classes for the current semester, their classes will be added to the queue for the Notetaking Coordinator to review and confirm.
- If you do not need Notetaking Services for a specific class (i.e. seminar, research, online course), please uncheck Notetaking Services before confirming accommodation letter.
Step 2: Confirm that you will need peer notetakers in the AIM Student Portal
Once classes begin, students will receive a reminder email asking them to confirm if they need or do not need a peer notetaker for each of their classes. Students can also confirm manually on the Notetaking Services menu in the AIM Student Portal.
- Please only request notetakers for the classes where there is a need. If you do not need notetaking services for specific classes due to the class format (i.e. online course, seminar, research, etc.), please do not confirm & let the Notetaking Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) know so we can cancel your request.
- Notetakers will not begin to be recruited or access granted to available notes until a student Confirms their need.
Step 3: Notetaking Coordinator works to recruit and assign notetaker(s)
While the Notetaking Coordinator is recruiting notetakers the student will see this status in AIM:
“No Notetaker has Been Assigned to this Class – If you know another student in the class that can be a good notetaker, please have them sign up on the Disability Resources website: https://disability.tamu.edu/peernotetaker.”
Step 4: View and Access Notes
To view the notes for specific classes, log into the AIM Student Portal. On the Overview page, on the left-hand side, click on Notetaking Services. It will have all of your classes listed, and you can see if a notetaker has been assigned for your class, and if they have uploaded notes.
Contact the Notetaking Coordinator at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns about requesting a peer notetaker.
