Some students have difficulty in understanding all the information they hear in a lecture, while other students can understand the lecture input, but struggle to make useful notes while they are listening.

We have two different sessions which you can sign up for, depending on your needs.

  1. Preparing for online lectures
  2. Making notes in online lectures
