AES students and notetakers are being kept up to date with information via email and PAWS. Please check your email/ PAWS announcements and contact with any questions.


The Notetaking Program facilitates the sharing of a volunteer classmates’ lecture notes, through Sharepoint to eligible students who have difficulty taking an effective set of class notes for themselves for reasons of disability or characteristics of another Saskatchewan Human rights protected ground.

The program is confidential for both the Notetaker and the Access and Equity Services (AES) registered student.

Accessing Notetaking Program

  1. Register with Access and Equity Services (AES)
  2. Request a notetaker below or through your AES channel in PAWS.
  3. Once AES receives your class information, they will send an email to all the students in your class requesting a volunteer notetaker. The service is confidential and anonymous.

If you have requested notetaking for a 6 credit class, then the term 1 notetaker will continue on in term 2.

How to access your AES notes

Accessing your notes for the 2021-22 academic year will be a little different than it has been before, but you can access your notes in a number of ways.

How do I become a notetaker?

  1. Notetakers must be registered U of S students.
  2. You must be in a class in which notetaking is required by a student. If a notetaker is required, all students in the class will receive an email from PAWS requesting a volunteer notetaker.
  3. If you are interested in volunteering, contact the Notetaking Program to make an appointment.
  4. You will need to upload your notes to Sharepoint

There are a couple of different ways in which notes can be uploaded:

If you use your laptop in class to take notes

Then it is a simple process to upload your notes to Sharepoint.

If you use pen and paper to take notes

You can scan handwritten notes or use one of the many scanning apps that convert image files to PDF files.

More information on this simple process will be given in the instructions email sent to you by the Notetaking Department, after you have been signed up.
