About Universal Capture

Universal Capture is a lightweight software application provided by Echo360. It can be used to create instructional video that is afterwards shareable via Sakai, other places on the web, or through communication tools like email. Video that is created with Universal Capture will automatically become connected to your Echo360 account and will be sharable in many ways.

Instructors commonly use Universal Capture to record the contents of their screen (such as content prepared in Powerpoint) while providing narration over a microphone. It is also possible to include video of the instructor while she/he is speaking as a component of the video.

Login to Sakai and visit a site

Locate the Embed Video button from any text editor in your site. Forums, Assignments, Lessons (Student pages) text boxes all have the editor.
