Cool new Capture Features in Version 3.7.0

I’ve added some cool new capabilities to Capture in 3.7.0. When started it records audio only and gives you an interface to enter comments:

Essentially what used to be Audio Only mode. Whats new is the preview area. If you pickup the phone to take an image (or use the image button photo@2x), after the image is captured is it will show in the preview area:

The big change is the “download PDF” downloadPDF button. It is really cool. It allows you to download a PDF file of the presentation from your dropbox or the web (for example the course’s Moodle site).

Then once it has been downloaded, you can add any of the images from that PDF to the lecture just by using the advance button next-slide@2xuntil you reach the image, and then tapping the preview to set it place (if you just leave it it be added automatically (a green checkmark will show once it has been added):IMG_0452

 

The reason this is cool is that if the lecturer has uploaded their presentation, you can now use LectureMonkey to synch the presentation slides with the recording just by tapping. If the lecturer shows a slide not in the downloaded presentation you can still just pick up the phone to take a image and have it added to the lecture. So while recording you can mix and match actual slides with camera images and video – all while recording everything said and adding comments.

If the lecturer uploads the lecture only after class is over, use the new edit mode to replace images you recorded (either just a one to one replacement, or lets LectureMonkey try and match the images to the downloaded slides from the lecture.

About Jacob Ukelson

blog (mostly) about my work and technology. So far I have been lucky enough to have been working on things I consider fun and with really top notch people. I have worked in both large companies (IBM) and small companies (ActionBase, ConicIT, Dapper, eXeedTechnologies). eXeed was establish to remedy a failure of the VC model in Israel – most VCs were monetary investors, but most companies needed not just money – they needed operational and business guidance. That is what we provide at eXeed – not just an investment but also our time and skills as seasoned software executives. I have taken on various titles – CTO, VP Products, VP BizDev – but throughout my career a constant focus has been on technologymarket fit, aka customer development. Unique breakthrough technology is a start, but the product must solve real business problems. It needs to be something customers can understand, relate to and will want to buy. I have been doing this for 20 years for software products in companies both large and small.
