Yournotes.com is a new organization founded by students of the Pennsylvania
State University. As a Pennsylvania non-profit corporation, the goals
of this organization are far from monetary wealth. Rather, the mission
of this organization is to increase the quality of students’ education
at the Pennsylvania State University. It is the feeling of this organization
that many students are attending lectures but are not paying attention
to what the lecturer is teaching. Instead, students “zone out” and
become busy with slide/overhead copying. By doing so, they give themselves
a false sense of security, believing that they are actually learning the
material by copying it onto paper. Of course, this method of learning
is poor, for it does not promote individual interpretation or critical
thinking. In order to increase the effectiveness of a lecture class,
this organization has dedicated its resources to deliver classroom and
lecture notes via the World Wide Web to students, at no charge.
This organization feels that by providing lecture notes, students will
be able to give the lecturer one hundred percent of their attention and
focus, enabling them to absorb the material that is being taught.
Yournotes.com is here to help Penn State move into the next century. By providing services such as distributing notes on the web, while using the newest technologies, we are introducing students to their future. We exist to serve the students of Penn State.
