As you work through an edX course, you may want to highlight a particular passage or make a note about what you have read. In some edX courses, you can highlight passages and make notes right in the course.
Note: Notes are currently not available for exercises, videos, or PDF textbooks.
When a course includes the notes feature, every page has a Notes page at the top and a pencil icon in the lower right corner.
To take a Note, simply highlight any text on a course page.
Then, click the pencil icon that appears over the highlighted text.
You can add text in the Comments field or some tags below that field. Click Save to save the note or Cancel to cancel it.
Your notes can contain text as well as tags that help you organize and find your notes. You can see individual notes inside the course page where you made them, or you can see a list of your notes on the Notes page.
