How do I download and use Echo360 Universal Capture?

Universal Capture (previously Personal Capture) software allows you to record desktop presentations from your own personal computer at any time or place. These recordings are stored on your personal computer but can be published to your Canvas course to allow student viewing.


Make sure that your system meets the technical specifications
to support Universal Capture software.


Please note:
If you are using a WSU-owned computer, you may not have the administrative privileges to download and install the Universal Capture application on your device. Please contact your local technical support for assistance. Technical support staff are listed here.
