Otago Capture lets you take notes while you’re viewing lectures and keep your own personal Study Guide for the course.
Taking notes – What’s included
Any notes taken in Otago Capture before, during, or after a lecture are saved in your personal and private Study Guide area. Your notes can also include bookmarks, questions, and discussion posts, along with slide numbers and video time stamps linking to the relevant materials.
Notes you enter during class are synced to the video/audio location or presentation slide you’re viewing at the time, so that when you go back to look at them later, you have context for the note you entered.
