Gerzof weighs in on new note-taking service
February 28, 2011
A note-taking service for students called NoteWagon.com is being marketed to students in the Boston area, and Emerson lecturer David Gerzof appeared in a recent WBZ-TV story to comment on the service.
“If all you have is a cheat-sheet of notes,” said Gerzof, “and no reference point for the discussion or the lecture, it takes a lot out of the education.”
NoteWagon’s creators say they’re appealing to money-strapped students with the opportunity to earn cash selling notes. Thousands of Canadian college students are already registered with NoteWagon, and now its creators are opening it up to the U.S.
At Emerson, students put their classroom knowledge into practice through internships, student-run marketing groups, and competitions. Students gain experience in communication theory, market research, analytical skills, and social media to serve corporate and nonprofit organizations in today’s competitive economy.
