Turn Thinking Into Progress

Recap is a free student video response and reflection app developed by the makers of Swivl. It gives teachers and parents insight into students’ learning and progress. Recap provides evidence of student thinking, improves formative assessment, and supports personalized learning.

How it works


Create and assign questions to a student, a group of students or the entire class to be answered during or after a lesson.


Get an overview of how each class is doing as a group or dig into individual responses for formative assessment.


Share individual responses with other students, parents and educators, or show a daily review reel in class.
