Our campus enlists classmates only in the role of note-takers where a 
physical or cognitive disability impairs a peer's ability to capture all 
the information effectively.  They tseek other avenues in situations 
where being a helper could prove distracting and thus unwittingly 
detrimental to a well-meaning fellow student.
