Dr Mike Wald was invited to present the latest developments in his award winning web-based application Synote at a symposium at the IBM TJ Watson research Center New York on November 9th. Dr Wald demonstrated publically for the first time Synote’s unique ability to synchronise live notes taken using Twitter with synchronised lecture recordings and transcripts created using IBM’s speech recognition software. Synote enhances the learning of all students, including disabled students and has been developed with the support of the JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee). Synote won the EUNIS Dorup E-learning Award 2009 and is being used in the UK, Germany and Italy as part of the European Net4Voice project as well as in US, Canada and Australia by other members of the Liberated Learning Consortium. Synote can play most audio and video formats on most browsers and computers. Evaluations have shown that students like using Synote, find the synchronised transcripts and notes useful and want more recordings and lectures to be available in this way. Synote was first used by students and teachers at the University of Southampton in October 2008 and new features continue to be added based on user’s feedback. Synote is feely available at and is also now being using extensively by Universities in Pakistan.
