ReCap is Newcastle University's institutionally supported lecture and event-recording service. It allows audio and visual material, including the presenters' voice, presentation slides and visualised documents, to be recorded and published online in an automated, easy-to-use process.

ReCap is used primarily to record live learning events. However it can also be used to record additional learning and teaching materials such as asynchronous teaching content, student feedback, pre- and post-lecture materials, public lectures and conferences.

Between Monday 4th Sept and Friday 8th Sept, ReCap will be migrated to the Panopto cloud. For more information please visit this page.
