Camtasia is a tool to record on-screen activity. The screen area to be recorded can be chosen freely so you create for example video tutorials and presentations directly via screencast, or via a direct recording plug-in to Microsoft PowerPoint.
With this tool you can show students how to perform certain tasks by showing all the steps just by recording the screen and do it yourself. This is a lot quicker than writing a whole step-by-step guide.
The programme consists of two major components:
- Camtasia Recorder – a separate tool for capturing screen audio and video;
- Camtasia Studio editor – a multimedia authoring tool with the industry standard “timeline” interface for managing multiple clips in a stacked track form.
The interface is intuitive.
We have a laptop available with Camtasia installed, which you can borrow (optionally) together with a high-quality microphone.
