Thank you all for your input! I am making notes on paper for know and filing them in the relevant place. Who knows how long before I just end up with a big pile of paper! I don't think I would ever find anything again haha

I know I am not the best example, or the best to advice, but I take notes on A4 papers and then note the book or paper that I read. I end up with huge piles of notes, but it suits me.
I have tried a lot of methods but I always got lost. This is more suitable for me.
At the end of the day, I would say do what you find more suitable to you!


Thanks for your reply! Handwritten notes would probably be my go-to. Do you have a system for organising them? And do you have any specific methods, like using a set template for a page, or colour-coding? I find it interesting to see what different people do!

Do you mean how to write notes quickly? I can recommend recording the speech of your tutor during the lecture and then converting with the special mp3 to text converter https://audext.com/mp3-to-text/ It's a good way to save your time and get all useful information from the lecture.


That’s a fantastic tool, thank you! I will be studying online so probably won’t need it but will keep it in mind.

I am interested in how different students take and organise their notes on materials. During my undergraduate degree, I never really figured out which method I preferred, and ended up with quite a mess of digital and paper notes. I’d like to do it more efficiently this time around!

Hi all,

I am about to start a part-time online Masters module and was wondering if anyone has any advice about studying when you have health issues.

I have a few problems, but the ones that I think will cause me the most trouble are mental fatigue and brain fog. I often find it really hard to focus my eyes on materials, especially on a screen, and thinking about anything complicated can feel like wading through marmalade.

I love learning and put off my postgraduate studies for a couple of years in the hope my health would improve, and when it didn't, I decided that it probably didn't matter how long I waited.

I am in touch with the disability support team at the university and am waiting to hear back from them about alternative material formats, like printed copies of online resources, and audiobooks.

If there is anyone out there who has experienced this sort of thing, I would be so happy to hear from you :)

Sarah

Hello everyone,

I'm new here and would like to ask you for some tips on taking notes. I took a break from studying for a couple of years and am starting a part-time Masters module with the Open University soon. I'm struggling to decide on how I should take notes, and I would love to hear what you do :)

Thanks in advance,
Sarah
