Structured note-taking is useful for courses—particularly online courses—that expect students to closely read texts and integrate them into their research. This flexible and reconfigurable practice encourages students to take notes about texts using Google Form prompts. Faculty can efficiently review notes to assess students’ engagement with texts and adjust class meetings and assignments.
This practice extends Cornell’s Notes system originally created by Walter Pauk. I use Google Forms to create structured prompts, and use Google Sheets to review, organize, and distribute student notes.
