What is Universal Capture?

As of the 30th of August 2019, Personal Capture (the software which allows you to record audio, video and laptop display) will no longer appear as a download option on the Echo360 platform. From 15th of January 2020, it will be discontinued altogether – with Echo360 no longer supporting any technical queries from this date.

Personal Capture is replaced by Echo360 Universal Capture, this is a stand-alone application which can be used to create recordings (captures) external to the classroom. You can create as many Universal Capture recordings as you wish, edit these recordings and share only those recordings you choose to make available. Shared recordings can then be accessed by students via Moodle and viewed both before and after class. Please visit the Universal Capture Demo page to find more information on Universal Capture.

Universal Capture is intended for use by Academic Staff only, and is suitable for use on Windows and Mac devices.

 (warning) The current version of Echo360 Universal Capture: Personal software is version 6 Recordings created using older versions of Personal Capture cannot be published to Lecturecast ALP.
