About the Project
Synote’s aim is to transform and enhance learning, motivation, enjoyment and equality of access from recorded lectures or any audio or video teaching or learning materials. Synote has been developed to overcome the problem that, while users can easily bookmark, search, link to, or tag the whole of a podcast or video recording available on the web, they cannot easily find, or associate their notes or resources with, part of that recording.
As an analogy, users would clearly find a textbook difficult to use if it had no contents page, index or page numbers. Without the interactivity offered by Synote, students watching educational videos can go into “movie mode” and lean back with their popcorn and Coca Cola, expecting just to be entertained.
