Like many other institutions, Furman University was reliant on peer notes for note-taking support. Neurodivergent students in particular were still battling note-taking anxiety - trying to keep up with the lecturer and take notes at the same time.

How did Glean help to solve this issue?

Andy shared some valuable insights into the effects that Glean has had on students at Furman University.

  • Glean allowed to students to become independent note-takers, rather than relying on peer notes.

  • Students could record their lectures and take notes in the same place, creating multi-faceted study resources.

  • Students no longer had to listen in class and take notes all at once, therefore their stress levels drastically reduced.

"Glean has been transformational. It's a tool that I wish I had when I was a student!"

Summing up the Glean Effect on students

Andy added that students really love the flexibility that Glean offers them, not just in the act of note taking, but but also in complementary features such as transcription, which is what really gets students excited.

Ultimately, Glean is able to put the student at the heart of their learning and note taking. Students can learn at their own pace and equip themselves with the tools required to be successful.

"I have completely revamped how I teach students to take notes."
