—Note-taking activity affects student’s learning
performances in blended learning courses, which consist of
face-to-face sessions and online learning materials. To promote
the effectiveness of note-taking, a lecturer gave students
instructions during the course. According to the results of a
lexical analysis of the contents of notes taken by students, the
lecturer’s instructions had a significant effect on some of the
indices of features of notes taken. This effectiveness can be
observed when the lecturer gives instructions as opposed to not
giving them. Also, the relationships between student’s
characteristics and indices of features of content of notes taken
—Note taking, blended learning, lexical analysis,
learning performance, student’s characteristics.
