This question is similar to this question but with a slightly different purpose.
For many of the reasons presented in that question, note taking can be useful but tedious. Similarly, this question addresses the difficulty of keeping track of notes(research notes in that case). Myself, I have been amassing pages and pages of notes from courses and seminars. The really important ones I attempt to Latex but often get lazy. My question:
Have you tried using technology like the digital pen for taking notes during math lectures? If so, what do you think? If not, discuss your thoughts on this.
In general, I am just trying to get a feel if it would be worth buying one for my classes (particularly seminar).
A few notes for those of you too lazy to look at the website of the pen:
- The pen records everything you right write and uploads it as a image/video file into a computer.
- The pen also records audio synced with your writing, so you can play the notes as a movie with the audio accompaniment.
- The pen also writes in regular ink in a notebook, so you also have a hard copy.
While fairly different, those with experience using a tablet PC should also feel welcome to post their experience, since the outcome of the digital pen produces something like that of the tablet, just with some added functionality.
Thanks ahead of time, today I nearly bought one, but I thought I would ask here first.
