does anyone (audio)tape their lectures??
did you actually use the tapes to review, or was it just a waste of effort?
i was thinking about getting a new tape recorder...... any recommendations for a particularly good model that worked very well for a large lecture hall???
hubby mentioned that there are digital recorders that can be connected to voice-activated software that will type out what comes off the recorder...has anyone tried this??? although i think the regular audio-cassettes would probably be more reliable for my purposes, i'm wondering if anyone has experience with this set-up.
i have had 2 of the digital recorders.........and have returned both of them. for whatever reason, the recording quality sucks, with loud static, only in spots, and sreeches also.
i finally settled on a mini recorder. taping lectures did not work for me, as previously stated, the quality is not the best. if you have a professor that allows you to place the recorder near them, and they do not move around a lot, then it would probably be better.
instead of recording lectures, i have found that reading my notes into the recorder helps immensely (sp). i have done this in a couple of classes and have been able to use the tapes throughout the weeks before exams to pump the info into myself.
has worked well.
