I know this sounds like a crazy question but I'm struggling with time management right now in grad school and have tried many different techniques. The best one for me so far has been to download my PPTs to my iPad and annotate them whether it be written or typed right on the slide or next to it. After this I have been taking those notes and going slide by slide to organize the information, I used to use OneNote then Evernote but Notion has been by far the best note taking app I have ever tried. But I noticed I was taking a lot of photos from the slides and adding them in my notes, but at the same time I can make my notes more personalized but it takes much more time. I'm just not sure what to do and if it's worth it to go home after every 3 lectures everyday and do this plus make anki flashcards when instead I can just study from the PPTs and notes I took in class. I absolutely cannot handwrite, tried that the other day and wow my hand really hurt after 2 hours of aggressive note-taking. What do you guys do during class and to retain the information after the fact? Do you guys make your own notes or just study PPTs?
