I tried to find a recent thread about tape recorders, but the most recent thread I found was 2008. So, I thought I would create another one. I'm in the process of trying to find one for my A&P class, do you have any suggestions?... Read More

    Thanks for posting this thread. I was thinking to buy a recorder for a&p too but SO happy to know I can use my iPhone 5 I spent so much money on. Definitely worth every penny if I can record my lectures!

    Yes I didn't realize either until a classmate made me aware. I usually put my phone on airplane mode in settings before I start recording. That way my phone isn't vibrating from a text or call while recording on a desk near the professor.

    I don't have an iPhone, but I do have an iPod (5th generation). It works really well because I can just plug it into the PC and grab the digital file.

    Btw, make sure you ask the professor for permission before recording lectures. Some professors do not allow their lectures to be recorded. Most do at my school, but we have a few who do not.

    Very true! I just looked on our syllabus that was posted yesterday and recording is encouraged whew! I'm bucking my seat belt for this semester.

    I use my iPad and the Notability app. It saves my recordings with my powerpoints, and I can press on any notes I've typed and automatically play the part of the lecture at that point. I can also email them to people and save them to Dropbox.

    However I don't really ever do the type-syncing. I don't like using a keyboard while recording because the click-clacking is LOUD!

    Ohhhh u might be on to something! I always bring my iPad to class. I think that may be best. I'm looking into this notability app now. Thanks!

    Digital recorder, but make sure it plugs into a USB. I have a Sony that I bought at Walmart for about $55. I can increase or decrease the playback speed, which is also a pretty nice feature.
