Requesting a Note Taker

You may request your note taking accommodations by completing the following steps: 

Step 1: Log-In to myAIMS

You will find a myAIMS link (red and white button) on every page on the website. To request note taking for your courses, log-in using your UTORid and password.

Step 2: Selecte the Courses and Request a Note Taker

To request note taking click on Courses/Notes located on the left hand navigation panel. You will then see a table listing your courses, followed by three columns.

Under the column “I require a note taker" you have the option to leave the default setting as “No" or click “change this", to switch your preference to “Yes".  Selecting "Yes" will enable note taking for the specific courses you require.
Once you have enabled note taking, you may have the the option to select a note taker. If no note takers are available, or there are no sample notes to view, please proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Recruitment

Once you have requested note taking for your courses, inform AccessAbility Services office that you need a Note Taking Package. This package is sent to course instructors, and is the first step to recruiting a note taker for your course.  The Note Taking Package is available to download from our website, or you can request a copy from or visit AA142 during open hours to obtain a hard-copy.  You must send or deliver the Note Taking Package to your course instructor as soon as possible, in order for them to recruit note takers from your class. Visit the Recruiting a Note taker page for more information on this process.

If you have any questions, please let us know.  Email or call 416-287-7560.

Failure to submit your note taking requests by the proposed timeline may impact our ability to implement the accommodations in a timely manner.
