Benefits of Taking Good Notes!

vasily-koloda-620886-unsplashPaying attention during lectures sounds like a simple task on paper, but actually putting good notes on that paper can be a tall order. Nowadays the attention span of college students is about as long as the time it takes them to make instant ramen. I’ve certainly had my days when my body was in the classroom, but my mind was still in bed catching up on sleep. On these types of days, I tend to walk out of classes with a severe lack of useable notes. I ask myself why it’s so difficult to maintain my focus during lectures. Is it because my class is super boring? Is it because the book is super boring? Am I just super bored with learning? All may be true, but then it dawned on me that not being motivated to pay attention could very well be due to a lack of a proper incentive to learn and succeed academically.

 

Sure, grades and GPA could be considered an incentive, but many college students, including myself, see that as more of an obligation that comes bundled with the college life. College students will be the first to tell you that there is no better incentive than money. For us, money is the most versatile resource at our disposal. Money is food, money is clothes, money is weekends out with friends, and most importantly, money is paying off tuition, loans, and textbooks. I can only imagine how much classroom attention and engagement would skyrocket if college students could get paid to take quality notes during lectures.

 

Omega Notes aims to provide that crucial incentive to all college students. By uploading your notes to our online platform, students can purchase them for a price you set yourself. Every time your notes sell, you earn residual income. It’s a simple and intuitive system that doesn’t require any training to use. The best part is that Omega Notes completely free with no subscriptions or hidden fees. What you see is what you get.

 

Being paid for taking notes has a lot more benefits than the ones that come to your wallets and Paypal accounts. Since college students are motivated to upload their notes and earn money for it, they will have good notes to use for their own studies, as well as share them with their fellow students. Our open platform promotes a more efficient and collaborative way of excelling higher education. Not only that, students who are note takers for Omega Notes gain a positive work ethic as well.

Earning While in the Classroom!

time=money

Every college student knows that free time is a blessing. The time I spend on my hobbies and social life gives me brief moments of freedom that I need to make it through each day. Not to mention having time to eat meals in between classes and taking afternoon naps to compensate for my lack of real sleep. This, after I told myself I would fix my sleep schedule after winter break (which still hasn’t happened by the way).

Unfortunately, every college student also knows that these moments are few and far between when so much time is spent in the classroom taking notes during long, drawn out, and energy draining lectures. The worst part is that all of my free time and the time I spend on academia earns me a whopping $0. So much for spending the night out with friends since I’m already broke after paying hundreds for tuition and books. I suppose getting a part-time job would compensate for this outrageous imbalance between the inflow and outflow of cash, but that means saying goodbye to my precious free time. Suddenly I remember that college life can be dreadfully unforgiving.

But what if I told you that you could get a paying part-time gig just for being a student? Well, being a notetaker isn’t a formal (or traditional) job, but it’s a perfect fit for students who value their time. Omega Notes seeks to optimize students’ time in the classroom by providing a platform where they can upload notes they have taken and earn each time someone purchases them. Whether you are a freshman who wants a little more spending money, a senior ready to graduate, or anyone in between, Omega Notes will reward you for being an attentive student.

The best part about Omega Notes compared to other note sharing platforms is how simple and non-intrusive it is to use. Students from any region or school can sell their notes at any reasonable price and put them out there for fellow students to purchase without any shady hidden fees or subscriptions. We also don’t bombard students with annoying emails constantly reminding them to upload their notes with us. Feel free to upload what you want and when you want, then watch the money flow in. Start using Omega Notes and start making your time in the classroom worth your while!
