Morae Recorder: Save Time by Having All Your Data in One Place
Recorder captures audio, video, on-screen activity, and keyboard/mouse input during a research session.
Morae ties what used to involve lots of devices and applications that didn’t talk to each other into one tidy package – eliminating hours of wasted effort. With Morae, all your data is captured digitally and indexed to one master timeline for instant retrieval and analysis.
Get Started Faster
Select a research method from Morae’s preset study templates – focus group, software usability test, or mobile device test – and Morae will set up the initial details for you. It even shows you a live preview of what will be recorded.
From there, it's simple to add things like task definitions, discussion questions, surveys, and custom markers. Want to use the same configuration again later? Morae allows you to save and re-use.
Customizable for Your Needs
Make the most of Morae by writing your own Recorder, Observer, and Manager plug-ins. Morae’s pluggable architecture enables you and your development team to build features specific to your testing environment.
Learn more about the expanding flexibility of Morae’s pluggable architecture and about the plug-ins that partnering companies have already created on Morae’s Plug-ins Page.
Use Morae’s camera-only recording to reach beyond the screen to record customer interactions that don't happen on the computer – like focus groups, in-depth interviews, hardware testing, paper prototype testing, and more.
Plug multiple video cameras into your computer for off-screen recording or PIP (Picture-in-picture). You can use consumer-grade digital video (DV) cameras, webcams, or a mix of both. When you're not recording the screen, you can use the recording computer for logging notes too.
Morae collects and stores data neatly in one place and gives you all the tools you need to view, analyze, graph, and present results with just a click.
Ask survey questions before the session, after each task, and at the end of testing – automatically or manually. Use the system usability scale (SUS), or create any number of custom surveys in a variety of formats – multiple choice, select all that apply, rating scale, or open-ended.
Get Test Assistance
AutoPilot delivers instructions, tasks, and surveys automatically during test sessions. Set up unmoderated testing at a public kiosk or a tradeshow booth and gather data without being there. If you’re flying solo, AutoPilot allows you to prompt, listen, and observe more carefully during testing.
Morae Observer: Monitor and Log Important Research Moments
Observer enables team members to watch the customer's experience, make notes, flag tasks, and chat in real-time.
With Morae’s chat feature, it’s now easier than ever to interact with fellow Observers during testing – even if they’re not co-located. Use Morae’s real-time chat to communicate from Observer-to-Observer while testing, or from Observer-to-Recorder for pre and post-testing.
Share Your Session
Give team members or clients a copy of the session right away by uploading it to your free Screencast.com account for instant sharing to anyone, anywhere.
Unlike logging with a stopwatch and notepad, Morae helps observers give structured, detailed feedback that is automatically synchronized and placed at the right moment on the video timeline. During research sessions, observers flag important moments by selecting a preset marker. Morae’s streamlined logging process results in more detailed, instantly searchable notes – saving you hours of time during review and analysis.
Gain Valuable Insight
Connect to a live Recorder session from anywhere via a network. Observers can see and hear anything being recorded – customers' faces, voices, or interactions on-screen or with physical objects. Team members or stakeholders running Morae Observer can collaboratively log comments, set markers, and chat in real-time resulting in more efficient logging, stronger buy-in, and a deeper understanding of your customers.
Collect Powerful Data
Automatically calculate standard metrics such as time on task or error rate by consistently marking a few simple things during each recording – like when the participant starts a task, ends a task, and whether they succeed or not.
Morae Manager: Analyze, Visualize, and Share Results Quickly
Use Manager to view and analyze Morae recordings, automatically calculate metrics, generate graphs, and create highlight videos to share with stakeholders.
Analyze Results Efficiently
Within Morae, you can search across many recordings to uncover patterns and trends in the data – without having to open Excel. You can also limit your search to one recording.
Instantly find and view the exact moment when participants clicked a button, typed something, navigated to a particular webpage, interacted with a specific dialog box, or viewed certain text on the screen.
Review Data in Less Time
Markers and tasks set during a recording session appear along the timeline as color-coded diamonds and triangles. Hover over these indicators for details; click one to jump to that moment in the video making it easy to review hours of video (along with comments and suggestions from a whole team of observers) faster.
Quick and Secure Online Sharing
Seek out important parts of your videos to showcase to others with Morae’s Table of Contents. Then deliver highlight videos quickly and securely over the internet with Screencast.com.
As a Morae customer, you get free storage and bandwidth on Screencast.com, which allows you to upload test results with one click and instantly share to anyone, anywhere. Morae maintenance customers will now receive a free Screencast.com Pro account, which offers more storage, monthly bandwidth, and caption capabilities.
Fast, Automatic Analysis
Morae saves you valuable time by calculating data and building graphs quickly. Morae automatically calculates and graphs standard usability metrics like effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction. (Attention usability experts: We've got your CIF and SUS covered.)
You can also create your own measurements and graphs based on mouse movement, clicks, time on task, markers, and satisfaction surveys.
Present Results Easily
Embed videos, graphs, and title clips from Morae directly onto PowerPoint slides with a few clicks – saving you time.
