We present an innovative system which couples the ability of producing recordings of lectures, meetings and other events when something is presented via screen projection, with the possibility of taking screenshots of what is being projected at any give time. This opens new possibilities for more efficient note taking, which is a practice known to trigger important cognitive activities.
