Sonocent Audio Notetaker
by Sonocent LLC.
Sonocent is a new type of audio notetaking software for Mac and PC laptop and Windows tablets. Research shows that capturing information is only one aspect of effective note taking. Truly effective learning is active learning, so synthesizing lecture material is the beneficial aspect of note taking. Engaging with the lecture content and summarizing it in note form creates connections in the brain, which aid with understanding and recall. Sonocent was added to the AT Lending Library through support from the CT Tech Act.
