About Otago Capture


This Help Site is under construction


In 2018 Otago Capture will be moving to the cloud.  This will make it easier for staff and students to use.  To find out more see the eLearning Blog.

For Staff

We will be updating this help site soon. The Otago Capture helpsite information for staff will be updated in the following weeks; in the meantime, staff may want to check out the Introductory Instructor Videos.

For staff wishing to book recordings for Summer School in 2018 please contact the ITS Service Desk.


Important Changes to Otago Capture for Staff

*NOTE: Adding a Tool Link in a Blackboard paper to the Otago Capture Section now requires an additional step and cannot be done ,as previous, through Otago Capture Administration Application. Once the Tool Link has been created in the menu, click the link to connect with the correct Section in Otago Capture. Instructions can be found here.


For Students

Otago Capture Helpsite information for student use is available from the left-hand menu. The easiest way for students to get up to speed with the new software is by checking out the Quick Student Guide and Video Tutorials available.



Otago Capture is the lecture recording system installed in selected Dunedin lecture theatres and seminar rooms.  It uses Echo360 devices and software to record lectures and events, and may also live stream in some locations.  The recordings will be available to students through Blackboard, MedMoodle or HSMoodle.

To use Otago Capture for your course, lecture series or for a one off event, you must first create a storage area for your recordings using the Otago Capture Administration Application (OCAA).  In addition you may also choose to schedule the recording of your lectures.
