- Camtasia is software you can use to make pre-recorded lectures. We have a Recording Room on the 4th floor where you can record your lecture with high tech equipment in a distraction-free environment. There are two main ways to use Camtasia:
- Record over a PowerPoint. With your PowerPoint open, simply lecture as you would normally. You can choose to just show the slides, or use Picture-in-picture, which records you as you speak.
- Record the screen as you demonstrate a process. Camtasia records your voice as you demonstrate on the screen how to navigate software or the internet.
- Jing is free software that allows you to record up to five minutes of video and upload it for free to the Screencast server. You can also use it to capture a snapshot of your screen. Jing is great for making quick video tutorials.
