The Disability Resource Center and the Veterans Resource Center received a one year grant of 100 Sonocent Audio Notetaker licenses. Skyline College was one of fifty California Community Colleges awarded this grant, worth over $5,000. Sonocent Audio Notetaker is “award-winning study and productivity tool that makes it easy to work with audio recordings.” The tool helps to increase comprehension of lectures and helps students organize their notes.
Disability Resource Center’s Assistive Technology Specialist, Judy Lariviere and Veterans’ Program Services Coordinator, Gina Ciardella will be attending a training on Sonocent Audio Notetaker at the High-Tech Center Training Unit, a training center for Assistive Technology and Alternate Media.
The Disability Resource Center and the Veterans Resource Center will begin distributing the licenses in the coming semesters to students with accommodations for audio recording lectures and/or Veterans who have an interest in using the software.
