What Do the Icons on the Play Menu Mean?

Play: Play back the lecture continuing from the last viewing.

Share (with colleagues): Send an invitation to a colleague to view the lecture. You need this only if the colleague isn’t registered for LectureMonkey using their school email address. It will send them instructions on how to access the lecture for viewing.

(Upload to) Dropbox: LectureMonkey tries to upload your lecture to your Dropbox as soon as recording is complete (assuming you have a Wifi connection), or the next time you open LectureMonkey in a Wifi zone. The icons describe where the lecture is located – an orange iPhone icon means it is local on your iPhone and a blue Dropbox icon means the lecture is on Dropbox – a lecture can be on either, or both. Sometimes you’ll want to “force” an upload of a lecture to Dropbox, use this icon to achieve that.

Edit: This allows you modify the recorded lecture – change lecture information (e.g. name), delete images and videos. If you are the owner (i.e. you recorded the video) you can also change the location of the boards and presentations.

Delete: Delete a lecture from the iPhone, Dropbox or both. Be careful, if you delete it from both it may be difficult to restore.


About lecturemonkey

LectureMonkey is a mobile and web platform that makes it easy to use an iPhone to capture lectures for later review. All lecture content (audio, whiteboards, and presentations) is easily and automatically captured – leaving you free to pay attention to the class. LectureMonkey is simple to use, just point the iPhone camera towards the front of the room and mark areas of interest like whiteboards and presentations and LectureMonkey does the rest. LectureMonkey automatically captures all important lecture content through images and audio. The captured lecture is stored on your phone and in your personal DropBox™ account. It is much smaller than video, and much more useful. You can enhance captured lectures by adding shared bookmarks and comments, and you can make lectures you captured available to your schoolmates to help them as well – and make yourself the class hero. Just think – review all your lectures anytime, anywhere! - Automatically record the whiteboard and presentation - Automatically record everything said in class - Audio only mode – record audio and manually capture presentation and whiteboard images or video - Easy review of captured lecture review saves you time when you need it most – right before a test - Skip directly to bookmarks and short reminders - Speed up playback by up to 50% – review a lecture in half the time To view a captured lecture, you can just use the built-in player; or just drag the DropBox directory on your computer to http://www.lecturemonkey.com to see the recorded lecture.
