The effectiveness and features of ”note-taking” are examined in an on-line learning environment. The relationships between the assessment of the contents of participants’ note taken during class, and the characteristics of students were studied. Some factors about personality and the learning experience are significant, and positively affect the grades given to their notes. Features of notes taken were extracted using a text analysis technique, and these features were compared with the grades given. The good note-takers constantly recorded the terms independently of the number of terms which was presented during the class. Conceptual mapping of the contents of notes was conducted, and it suggests that the deviation in the features of notes can be explained by the number of terms in a lesson.
