We have a great opportunity to interact with an expert instructor and user of Camtasia. Susan Mircovich uses Camtasia lessons to help her students learn chemistry. She has created a tutorial Camtasia Recordings a Short Tutorial (35 minutes long) for you to get started using this tool.
Camtasia is like Jing on steroids– in fact, Jing is the TechSmith’s simple, free tool and Camtasia is their higher end product. Camtasia Studio is a software product that the university provides for faculty use.
Susan developed this tutorial expecting you to have Camtasia open while she demonstrates various techniques. You can pause her webinar while you try it out for yourself. In this tutorial you will:
- See examples of camtasia projects and hear how Susan uses these movie clips in her course
- Learn to record a project
- Edit a project
- Save and publish your movie
- Learn about some extras: menus, title clips, callouts and transitions
As an extra bonus, Susan will make herself available to questions either in a followup Collaborate session or via email 1:1. It’s up to you. We’ll need to hear from you to let us know if you’d like us to schedule Susan for a group session or if you’d like to contact her personally.
Finally, another reason to think about signing up for the Sitka iTeach2 — Susan will be one of our guest instructional designers working with faculty all week long. We’re really looking forward to her joining us this summer! Thank you Susan.
