The catalyst for this research is the simple premise that you cannot review what you do not capture. It focuses on two critical aspects of the teaching & learning experience, with specific focus on lectures. This review discusses some issues of & proposes an integrated practical solution for a) enhancing current teaching methodologies with minimal impact on preparation & presentation; b) enhancing comprehension, retention, study & review options for all students. Teachers’ main concerns with presentation include maintaining student engagement, adopting new technologies & improving quality of teaching. Students’ main concerns with learning include understanding content while simultaneously identifying & applying appropriate techniques to minimise information overload. The challenge is finding a simple tool to assist teachers achieve their goals that will also support both different learning styles & varying degrees of skill in note taking, study & review techniques of all students.
