Note taking is laughable in so many ways. I can't imagine how long folk will put up with that as it's speed is slower than pen and paper in what I've seen others use it. It's slower because you don't just write but you have to check the computer got it plus on most you have to write in big letters then the software does a nice trick of picking that up and sizing it to a note.

I think the attraction is for those that don't want to use a keyboard or never learned to type.

Good idea but appears to fail in practice. That is, if I was in a class I would be at a disadvantage as I would be distracted by this work of notetaking over pen and paper.

Here's my thought on this. Maybe it's a good thing that such folk do this and pay the price in so many ways. Those that are smart enough to see the issues will get better grades.
