Course overview: are you the Genius?
This course really helped me remember the information in meetings. It made taking notes much more fun to take and to remember.
interesting technique but time consuming in practice for meetings.... great for mind mapping in a solo setting
As I rolled down the comment sections, I can see a lot of people complaining about "much talking and less doing" and there it is. If the instructor shows us how to write notes by her own examples, it would be better. With the flipchart, only text, so what is the purpose of buying courses here?
Charming lady. It's nice to see that her takes aren't perfect, even thouugh she communicates the information succinctly. Wish there was a little more information on organizing the notes, and wish the Flipchart part of the lecture was a bit more elaborate. Other than that, it was the right kind of information to get me started.
Some of the tips provided are really helpful; I would have found the course more useful if there were one or two walkthroughs of creating notes based on specific lectures. I would also have appreciated more time devoted to helping set up or create your own note-taking system, or time spent reinforcing and implementing principles in different ways, rather than just outlining some principles before moving on to the next section. Overall, it was a good introduction to visual note taking, and has helped me begin to approach my meetings from a more visual perspective, but I think I still have some practicing to do before I get a real hang of it.
Good Teacher: clear and direct. Lack of practical use cases (eg what to highlight, phrases, etc) in order to use visual note taking in real meeting or during conferences.
Very nicely explained and easy to copy drawings. Instructor is very pleasant. In one section, the audio was kind of off as the music was about ten times louder than the speaking voice. I'm sure this will help me a lot to take better notes. Thank you for this course!
Some good concepts and interesting ideas looking at visual note taking. It was sometimes difficult to understand Karlijn, but overall I enjoyed it.
Soy un informático que toma sus apuntes con pluma y papel, lo más difícil es ser conciso y específico en pocas palabras, ayudarse de dibujos y esquemas me ha permitido lograrlo. I am a System Engineer that takes notes using a fountain pen and paper, the hardest part of it is how to do it consistently and specific using few words, using draws and schemas has allowed me to achieve this goal, in fact, I am working in improving myself on be fastest.
This course does not deliver anything different to scattered elements of sketchnoting. He does not have a single sketchnote designed by the instructor!
It was a nice course however, I had my reasons for taking the course about note taking, and I posted questions which were not answered which spoilt all the good side the instructor did
An interesting course, I will need to go over it again a couple of times as there are some good tips in there. I enjoyed the section on drawing, and in the workshop, I was in today after watching this I had fun practising some of the tips in the drawing section. I enjoyed the instructor's presentation, it's always good to see an instructor so enthusiastic about their subject, it makes it more enjoyable. I will try to use these tips more in my notes, as I really don't take good notes and always struggle to read them afterwards so they just end up not looked at! The tips provided in the course address my note taking issues nicely. I Recommend this course as it's not too long and covers the topics nicely.
I do not know about the match yet, but I like what I am hearing and so hoping this will help me learn more easily what I need and want to learn is so many other ways.
It was a really good match for me because I get what Carlin was talking about with rule 6 as one example when I am singing "it's a jungle out there" I think of the pictures it shows me in Mr. Monk to memorize the lines"it's a jungle out there, it's a jungle out there, people think I'm crazy cause I worry all the time..."
The content of the course is good, I had sometimes trouble with the spoken language. Overall there are some good tips on using the visual note taking process.
