Take meaningful notes with minimal effort.
- Christa Miller

Info-FOMO is real: you leave 65% of information behind in class if you don’t take notes. With Glean you can make sure to capture your whole class, improve your learning and boost your grades.

Taking notes by hand does not capture everything. And, audio recording alone may capture everything but be difficult to use for study. That's where Glean can help. Glean is a cloud-based app that keeps your notes always within reach. It's designed to chunk and tag an audio recording so you can have useful notes that are simple to review. Glean works on a laptop or desktop using the Chrome browser. If you like mobile apps, download the mobile version.
