HOW TO LOAD NOTES TO THE DSS NOTE TAKER PORTAL   

File Upload Instructions

File formats can be in either a PDF format file or a word document file. Handwritten notes (must be clearly legible) can be scanned and saved as a PDF file. Please note you should upload one file per lecture. If you have multiple scanned pages for a lecture, combine them into a single file.

The format for the name of the file should be the course name (e.g. MATH 101) and Date (e.g. Sept 1).

If there are no notes for a class meeting, please load a file stating the reason “no notes for today” and the reason why (e.g. test day, professor canceled class).
