Notetaking

Students with documented disabilities which interfere with their ability to take notes during lecture may receive access accommodation for notetaking.  

Access notes through CDAR Access Portal

Starting Spring 2020, students with a notetaking accommodation can access their notes through the CDAR Access Portal

  1. Go go www.uidaho.edu/notetaking to log into the CDAR Access Portal. The portal is connected to DUO, so you will need your authentication method. 
  2. Each semester you will need to agree to the Notetaking Agreement.  
  3. Under my My Accommodations click Notetaking Services.
  4. You will need to confirm your request for notes by clicking "Confirm" under each class in which you have requested Notetaking. 
  5. Once you confirm your request, access your notes by clicking "Click to Expand" this will list your notes in reverse-chronological order.
  6. Click "Download", a pop-up will ask if you want to open or save your notes. It is recommended that you save your notes to your computer. 
  7. You will get an email every time notes are posted.
