    I learned today that a group of students used a Google doc to take lecture notes-- they all took notes simultaneously in a collective file.

    As they took notes, they would mark places they were confused or couldn't follow the lecture--other students would see & explain, real time

    at the end of the semester, as they are prepping for finals, they have this massive document of notes, questions, & explanations from peers

  2. That is really awesome. Or were they doing it to rotate class attendance? I would've never trusted someone else's notes.

  3. I dunno where they learned this, or if they just came up with it together, but it is AMAZING. Truly brilliant collaboration & solidarity.

    Part of me wants to incorporate this activity intentionally-- I wonder how it would work. Would they be less inclined if it was mandated?

    Have any of y'all profs tried this or seen this play out? @icpetrie is this a thing that they are taught, or what?

    they surely used it in this way- I know they were in part having each others' backs for when someone was absent or bored(?)

  4. If only such a thing existed way back in the day I was minoring in history. It was so easy to miss stuff in those lectures.

    Do you give them or post notes anywhere when you teach? Or just readings?

  6. I'm going to really date myself but... Powerpoint didn't even exist most of my undergraduate years.
