Taking Notes from Videos, Audio Recordings, Interviews, and Websites







The steps for taking notes from a print source, like a book or a website, are:

How to take notes from print
  • Read a section of text
  • Think about the new information until it makes sense
  • Ask yourself, “Does this information help answer my research question?”
  • Connect new information with what you knew before
  • Write down the important words

Use the same strategies for other sources:



How to take notes from an interview
(it's a great idea to video or audio record
an interview so you can go back and listen later)
  • Ask one question at a time
  • Think about the answer until it makes sense (you may need to ask a follow up question)
  • Ask yourself, “Does this information help answer my research question?”
  • Connect new information with what you knew before
  • Write down the important words


How to take notes from a video or audio recording
  • If it's less than 5 minutes, watch or listen to the whole recording one time
  • Go back to the beginning and watch or listen to a section
  • PAUSE THE RECORDING! Think about the new information until it makes sense
  • Ask yourself, “Does this information help answer my research question?”
  • Connect new information with what you knew before
  • Write down the important words
