Adding Labels

This is where things get flexible! 

You can annotate audio using Quick Labels, text notes, or both - so you can work in a way that best suits your learning style. 

Add as much or as little text as you want in class - you can easily return to key points to review them at your own pace.

Tip - You can also Group relevant information together in Groups, see here for more detail: Card Groups

Add Quick Labels

Use Quick Labels to pinpoint key information in the lecture, without losing focus or needing to type.

There are 2 ways to add a Quick Label:
1. Long click: Click and hold a label with your left mouse button.
2.  Short click: Click to select a label, then press Enter on your keyboard (or click the Post button).

Top tip : If you find you mainly use Quick Labels without adding text, check out Glean's  Lightning Mode  
Important : We've moved the Task label, and made it into its own special card type. You can now manage and track all the tasks that you create, see here for more details:  Task Cards


Add Text Notes

To add a text note, simply start typing.
(There’s no need to click into the Input Box).

To post your note to your Feed, hit Enter on your keyboard (or click the Post button).

Top Tip: Avoid the temptation to type too much - it’s easy to lose focus on what’s being said.
Glean is recording everything, so you don’t need to worry about capturing every word.
Did you know #1: If you  type a URL  to a website then Glean will give you a clickable link and a short preview of the page in your feed.
Did you know #2: You can search Wikipedia for a Definition as you record. Check out the page on  Definition Cards  for more info.


Combine Quick Labels and Text

Want to label some audio as 'Important', and also add a quick note? Or highlight a 'Task' and note the deadline?

With Glean, you can combine Labels and text notes in any order:

  • Type text, then select a label before posting to your Feed (long press the label to quickly post).
  • Select a label first, then add your text.


Add Headings

Glean's Heading buttonUse Headings to break up your recording - and Feed - into sections, for example when the lecturer changes topic.

Add text to your Heading in the moment - or don't. A placeholder is added for you to come back to later.
