What do the buttons do?

Jamworks features all of the controls that you'll need to start tracking your content during any kind of sessions - lectures, seminars, or personal meetings.


Master controls

There are three main control buttons in the app which actively highlight information from a recordings, dependent on the button that you click. These buttons are described below:


Here is the highlight button. You can use this to start highlighting something important - for example useful information about an assessment. Tap it to start highlighting, and click it again to end the highlight.



Flag - you can use this button to drop a pin on important sections of your lectures. This marks a 10-second highlight (5 seconds before and 5 seconds after you clicked the button) which you can refer back to after the recording. You can also use the flag button while you're actively highlighting a segment with the highlight button too.

If your lecturer has moved to a new topic and you were daydreaming a little, that topic could be 45 seconds in once you realise its super important, so hit the trackback button 3 times (or as many as you need) to jump back in 15-second increments, and start highlighting from where you left off.


Capture controls

Jamworks allows you to choose what you want to record. By default it captures your screen content and audio. To change this you can 'Mute Audio' or 'Stop Capturing'...


Mute Audio

By clicking this button, Jamworks will just capture your screen content, it won't track any audio (ambient or machine-generated) so you'll just be left with silent video clips.


Stop Capturing

By clicking this button, Jamworks will just capture the audio (ambient and machine-generated), it won't track any screen content so you'll just be left with audio clips.


Ad-hoc controls

Both the Mute Audio and Stop Capturing buttons can be triggered during the recording at the same time, so at any point you can stop and start capturing the audio or video.




Your highlight playlist from the recording is displayed below the buttons. This will show you every highlight that you've created with any of the control buttons. All highlights can be renamed live during the lecture, and can also be deleted by clicking on the trash icon on the right of the highlight.


By clicking on the pencil on any highlight you load the editor, where you can name your highlights so that you have an added layer of categorisation, or add tags to organise your highlights. This will help you search for your highlights later on.Screenshot_2020-12-21_at_14.38.54.png
