Students interacting with Catalyst resources in ePUB format are able to take personal notes within the resource. This feature allows students to keep track of key points from their reading, and facilitates student-content interaction.
Users can turn the personal notes feature on and off in the Settings panel in the ePUB reader, as seen below. Once activated, the personal notes interface will appear in the right-hand margin.
To leave a personal note, users can highlight any text on the page. Users are then able to choose from one of five colours to highlight, and may type out their note. Clicking "create note" will save the highlight and associated text.
Personal notes allow students to interact with Catalyst resources more effectively and efficiently, supporting students' independent learning and aiding them during revision.
