Frequently Asked Questions


Q. I am a Moodle user and I'm having trouble accessing the screen recording feature. Can you help?


  • It's likely that Moodle is preventing screen recording due to Harmonize being loaded into an iframe. We won't bore you with all the technical details, but opening Harmonize in a new tab should allow you to get around this LMS limitation.
