How do I make a new summary?

When you log into your eFaqt account, your Library dashboard opens. Here you can view which courses you take, and all the materials (books, articles, presentation slides, hand outs etc.) you study and make summaries from.

1. Choose the type of material

To be able to create a new summary, first you have to choose which type of material you want to study. Click “Add study materials” on the top right of your screen. Below that, choose the type of material you would like to summarize: e.g. text book, article, presentation slides etc.
