CaptureCast events are either live or on-demand.

You can only view live events within their pre-determined time slots. If you try to view the live event outside of its time slot, the screen displays a "Stream not found" notice. Live events are usually programmed to take place on a predictable schedule, just like regular course sessions or lectures.

If your instructor later publishes the event, you can view it at your convenience "on-demand".

The CaptureCast viewer interface is comprised of an Audio-visual view, a Slide view, a group of four Toggle view icons, a Chapter and slide timeline, and a Search and navigation menu.
