Because of the increase in technology, portable gadgets which has the ability to display every kind of document formats including portable document format (pdf), electronic publication (epub) and other types of document formats have been widely used in learning. This project will be able to provide alternative online notes which will increase the ease of access of academic notes to university students in helping them gain more information. This project will make all academic notes available to students resulting the ease of access of education. The researcher will be able to come up with an interactive website that every student can use to get updated notes or even upload some notes by a specific topic which can be later categorized by the system for quick and easy retrieval. Students especially in Kenya have embraced technology and this can be a great tool to use to administer academic information to those who can be able to access it at any time they want. Failing an examination can sometimes be as a result of minimal research, lack of notes, and lack of understanding of some topics during their course of study, missing lectures among others. With this in place, many of the students in this bracket will be able to access the website and get good and understandable notes. Lecturers tend to give about 40% of the course understanding to students and the students themselves are required to find the other percentage by themselves, hence they are required to do research from libraries and the internet to boost their understanding. This will make research even easier and better because everyone can easily know where to get useful information.
