Just for clarification, "aantekeningen" is a note as in the notes one takes for a class (usually in a notebook), and "briefje" is a note as in something you write down on a piece of paper (such as a sticky note)?

Yes, that's it. E.g. a boodschappenbriefje is a grocery list/shopping list and natuurkunde aantekeningen are physics notes.

How does one say "I take notes"...? Is it nemen or is there a different way of saying it in Dutch?

A five syllable word for notes? Do people use a shortened version for such a common word, like just using the English version?

Nope, "aantekeningen" it is. :)

You could use 'notities', a word I use more than 'aantekeningen'.
