Getting started with online lectures

Jamworks has been built so that you can capture the important moments from your lectures whether they are in-person, remote or blended. Follow the steps below to learn how to start using Jamworks to capture your online lectures.


Launch and go

All of your lectures are synchronised from Canvas, so every lecture that you’re in you will receive a notification within the Jamworks application that you have an ongoing session. 

Simply click Join Session on the home screen and you’ll be connected to your lecturer’s slides to record.

Lecture capture in the palm of your hand


Use the Highlight button (middle) to capture important moments from your lecture. Tap the button to start, keep it running for as long as that topic is being discussed and press the button again when you want to finish your clip.

Point of Interest

Use the Point of Interest (right-hand side) to capture a 10 second snippet instantly. Useful for key points that you want to come back to later, or to capture individual slides every time they change as a marker to come back to later.


You don’t know that something is important until it’s already important. Use the trackback button (left-hand side) to jump back in 15-second increments to start recording when you feel that important topic started and never miss a syllable.
