Venture Capital course does away with traditional note-taking

ALPHARETTA, Ga., June 24 /PRNewswire/ --- Students taking a special course in Venture Capital at Wake Forest University have, over the last semester, benefited from the use of Recordant audio-capture technology that allows web- based archiving, searching and playback of course lectures.
