Why Academic Transcription?
If you belong to the school that subscribes to "Who wants to read anyway, why transcribe?" You need to know these facts.
Statistics claim that compared to learning via a lecture, reading can double the memory retention. Professors please note. Knowledge is more easily disseminated via textual format. Students take in the information
you give them and retain it in their short- term memory. To recall the knowledge the information needs to be reinforced by the way of text, so that parts can easily be skimmed.
Transcription enables those with disabilities to read your lectures later.
Before a research starts the group discussions that take place are often referred to later to see the orientation and objectives of the research. These discussions are often full of cross talking. But they are
important to find the objective of the research and the recommended methodology.
