Overview & Features

AutoView Screenshot

AutoView is a cloud like Lecture Capture and Live Broadcast system for Distance Learning Providers. It is intended to replace the more traditional PC based Lecture Capture software with a single, easy to manage, centralised service integrated with your Moodle VLE and operating entirely within the web browser.

Unlike competing products, AutoView operates as though it were a part of your VLE and does not require teachers or students to move out of the VLE environment in order to watch video courses or participate in live lecture broadcasts.

AutoView is a cross-browser/platform compatible and can be used with the majority of commonly available web browsers and operating systems. Use the links on the left hand menu to find out more about AutoView.

The AutoView system consists of a number of separate parts which build up to form a complete video presentation system, bringing the lecture hall into the home or the office via the internet.
