What's in it for you
Screen capture allows you to record your pitch in a demo-like environment, where you can imagine you're sharing your screen with a prospect and walking them through what they are seeing, much like your real-life presentations. Screen capture helps you nail down the multitasking skill of pitching and demoing at once. For some quick tips and tricks, check out the troubleshooting section of this article.

Do this step by step
Note: Screen capture can be set up by your admin as Webcam or audio only. If you're doing a Webcam screen capture, your screen will be captured on video as well as your face. For audio only screen captures, your screen will be captured on video with audio of your voice speaking.
- If you’re doing a screen capture pitch for the first time using your Chrome browser, you will see a message that you need to install Screencastify.
- Click the Install button on the bottom left and follow the Screencastify install directions.
- Reload your browser, and you should now see the screen capture icon in the Pitch IQ section. Click record.
- A menu will open with sharing options. You have the option to share and record your entire screen or the just application window. Choose what works best for your demo purposes, and click Share.
- Screencastify will ask to enable your microphone and camera. Click Allow.
- When you're ready, click Record. Deliver your pitch, using the windows you need for demo purposes. When you're done, click Stop.
Note: Presenting in fullscreen mode can have limitations in the behavior of the screen recording and video won't be visible. Recording the entire screen for any kind of presentation prevents this from happening.
- Watch your screen capture through, then select to Re-record, Save Draft, or Submit.
Hardware encoding issues
- If your video overlay is failing to display, check your settings. In some cases, you will need to turn off hardware encoding.
- To do so, select the Screencastify extension. Click the menu icon.
- Select Options from the menu.
- Scroll down to Advanced options, and toggle Hardware Encoding off.
- Close the Chrome browser. Relaunch LearnCore and record your Pitch IQ.
