Do you work with high school or college-age students who find it hard to take notes on their laptop computers during the teacher's PowerPoint presentations? If the teacher is willing, copy the presentation onto the student's laptop. With the presentation open, click "View" on the toolbar to change from "Normal" to "Notes Page." Now the student will have a text box in which to write class notes about each slide. When the student closes the presentation s/he will be prompted to save the changes and he'd better say YES.
