Lecturecast Universal Capture Personal

What is Universal Capture Personal?

Universal Capture Personal is a stand-alone application which can be used to create recordings (captures). Recordings can include slides (or what you choose to show on your computer screen), video of the presenter and audio. You can create as many Universal Capture Personal 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 Personal Demo page to find more information on Universal Capture.

Universal Capture Personal is intended for use by Academic Staff only, and is suitable for use on Windows and Mac devices. For more information on system specifications/requirements, refer to Universal Capture Personal Specifications webpage.

 (warning) Universal Capture Personal replaced Personal Capture in September 2019. Recordings made in the previous Personal capture versions cannot be published to Lecturecast. Please ensure that you are using the latest version of Universal Capture Personal.
