Capture from a mobile device

To record a video or take a photo and upload it to a Media Library from your mobile device (in this example, an Apple iPhone), first navigate to the desired Warpwire Media Library in your browser. If the library doesn't yet exist, you'll need to Create a new Media Library or turn on Warpwire for your course.

Tap the plus (+) button at the top of the screen.

Next, tap "Take Photo or Video" to begin the capture process.

When you've selected your desired setting, click the white/red circle to begin capture.
