Designing Powerful Tutorials with Camtasia Studio (for Macintosh)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Screencasting is a fun and exciting way for students to take an active role in their own learning. Student-created screencasts can be used for authentic assessment, tutoring and sharing concepts with a global audience. This workshop will start with the basics of how to get started with screencasting. With hands-on guidance and demonstrations, participants will learn how easy it is to record, edit and share their screencasts using Camtasia (a free copy of Camtasia Studio or Camtasia for Mac will be provided to each attendee).

Participants will learn to create, organize and present crisp, professionally-pleasing screencasts. Other topics to be covered include:

  • Screencasting on a budget
  • Pen-based input tools (Tablet PC, Electronic Whiteboard, USB Tablets, etc)
  • Tips on microphones and recording high quality audio
