While users can easily bookmark, search, link to, or tag the WHOLE of an educational recording they cannot easily find, or associate their notes or resources with, PART of that recording. Synote is a free web-based application that enhances student-centred learning allowing synchronisation of transcripts and slides and student or teacher created notes with educational recordings. Notes/’tweets’ taken live on mobile devices using Twitter can be synchronised with the recordings of the class. Teachers and peers can give feedback linked to appropriate moments for recorded tasks. Synote’s synchronised transcripts enable the recordings to be searched while also helping support non-native speakers and deaf and hearing impaired students as well dyslexic students while the use of text descriptions of video or images helps blind or visually impaired students. Synote has been used successfully in schools, colleges and universities worldwide with students with a wide range of languages, abilities and disabilities.

Abstract

While users can easily bookmark, search, link to, or tag the WHOLE of an educational recording they cannot easily find, or associate their notes or resources with, PART of that recording. Synote is a free web-based application that enhances student-centred learning allowing synchronisation of transcripts and slides and student or teacher created notes with educational recordings. Notes/’tweets’ taken live on mobile devices using Twitter can be synchronised with the recordings of the class. Teachers and peers can give feedback linked to appropriate moments for recorded tasks. Synote’s synchronised transcripts enable the recordings to be searched while also helping support non-native speakers and deaf and hearing impaired students as well dyslexic students while the use of text descriptions of video or images helps blind or visually impaired students. Synote has been used successfully in schools, colleges and universities worldwide with students with a wide range of languages, abilities and disabilities.
