Effortless note-taking
Being truly present for meetings or lectures can mean battling information overload. Caption.Ed helps you take meaningful notes, effortlessly so you can be fully present.

Highlight the things that matter to you
Add timestamped notes against your captions in real-time, flag key information as important, and upload additional media such as slides or images to support your note-taking.

Review your notes with ease
Caption.Ed allows you to revisit past sessions so you can go back over the notes you made, make any revisions necessary, and export the information you need in a variety of file formats.

Find key info, instantly!
Your notes are automatically time stamped against your transcript. This means you can click on a note you've made and skip straight to that part of the recording, allowing you to review what was said with ease!

Heard something important? Flag it!
With this feature, you can flag a section of dialogue within your session as important. Great for when you need to go back and review key moments from your meetings or lectures.

Full transcripts
With the Caption.Ed Lite and Caption.Ed Pro packages, you can get captions and a full transcript of what was said!

Upload additional media
Want to add more context to your notes? You can! Upload slides in the Notes Editor to review your notes, transcript and the recording against the slides from your lecture or meeting.

No transcript? No problem!
With the Caption.Ed Notes plan, you get use of the note-taking features with a visualisation of the audio rather than a transcription. Perfect if you just need notes on their own!

On desktop and mobile
Take notes, anywhere! Caption.Ed is available on both desktop or mobile. You'll find the app on both the App Store and Google Play so you can take notes on the go.

Works where you do
Caption.Ed works on any device and with Zoom, Teams, YouTube, Blackboard, Panopto, Echo360, and so much more!

Overcome barriers with live captioning
Turn spoken word into text in real time, in any setting. Being able to follow the words on a screen as they’re spoken makes it easier to access and absorb information during lectures, seminars, study meetings and when you need to do your own research.

Banish information overload with assisted note taking
Make complicated information more manageable with smart note summaries. Highlight what’s important and Jamworks will intelligently summarise what was said into bite-sized study notes.

Boost comprehension with AI generated quizzes
Test yourself with automatically generated revision quizzes. Jamworks converts your smart note summaries into a series of questions to help structure your revision. Each question is linked to the appropriate section of the recording, making it super simple to refresh your memory on important topics.

Personalise your productivity
Study more productively with Jamworks on your mobile, laptop or tablet. Information is synced across devices for all in-person and online study sessions.

Your lecture recordings, when you need them
Use Jamworks to record your lectures, seminars and study meetings and you’ll be able to access them whenever you want. Study on your own terms – no more waiting around for your institution to upload.

Less pressure to keep up
To help you avoid feeling overwhelmed in class, Jamworks provides full text transcripts of the entire session. Beat information-FOMO, boost your ability to focus and be more present in the moment. You no longer need to worry about noting down every...single...syllable.

An easier way to take notes
Highlight important snippets of information to create bite-sized revision clips. Simply press the Highlight button when you hear something important to save a short recording, along with a text transcript of what was said. Add your own notes during a live session and go back later to add further context or anything that you missed.

Support if you lose concentration
Don’t worry if you zone out or miss something during a lecture or seminar, simply select the Trackback button to jump back in 15-second increments to start highlighting from the point where you lost concentration.

Customise your learning experience
Choose from pre-set accessibility profiles, such as: Seizure safe, Vision impaired, ADHD friendly & Cognitive disability or select from dozens of custom adjustments to make the most of Jamworks – no matter your ability, disability or specific learning difficulty.

Time for the things you love
Study more productively and confidently with Jamworks, so that you have more time and a better head space to do the things you love outside of your studies.

Not getting the most from class? Only a third of students think they get value from lectures. And no wonder!

The volume and speed of the information is overwhelming so it’s harder to take effective notes and learn.

Glean screen picture

It’s distracting during class
You can either try and capture information in notes or actively listen and engage in discussion.

The medium doesn't work for you
We mostly study and teach with text, but spoken information might resonate more.

In-class or online, recording is the foundation of your Glean notes.

Instantly screenshot online classes to capture additional information not included in the slides.

It’s a process, not an outcome
The act of taking notes helps you to learn, so using class or peer notes affects understanding.

Glean is the antidote to information overload
Our proven four-step process empowers you to extract all the value you need from class so you can be more confident in what you’re learning.
