Notetonic: New Tool to Support Teaching and Learning


Lakehead University and Notetonic Inc., have teamed up to provide free access to Notetonic, a web-based student feedback app that uses artificial intelligence to automate the analysis of qualitative student feedback.

  • No technology is required by the instructor to pose the in-class question(s).
  • Students provide feedback on what they learned, where they need extra help, and to rate their level of understanding during the last few minutes of class when it’s most critical.
  • Instructors receive immediate and detailed anonymized data on course concepts students are mastering and areas where they may be struggling.
To get started with Notetonic:
  1. Sign up for a free Educator’s account on the Notetonic website.
  2. Follow the prompts to set up your course(s).
  3. Share your thoughts on Notetonic through a feedback questionnaire.
To learn more, join one of our online information/demo sessions:

Can’t make these dates? Individual sessions can be arranged.
