This set of videos takes you through Camtasia 8. It is a complete introduction to the tool
For me personally, screen casting is perhaps the most versatile technology I have ever come across in eductation. ALL the videos on teachertrainingvideos.com are made using screencasting. Screen casting tools allow you to record the screen of your computer and anything you say or do on the screen comes out. In 2006, I suggesed that screen casting could be used to provide feedback
to students and the idea generated widespread media publicity, More recently, it has been used for flipping the classroom
Remember, anything you do on the screen will be recorded so you can talk over PowerPoints, describe pictures, talk over documents, talk over graphs and diagrams. But remember your students can do this too.
My recommendation would be SNAGIT. You can download SnagIt for 15 days and test it out. You do have to pay for it after that. It is a one off cost of £30. My videos below will get you using the technology in no time.
Due to popularity. I have developed a special set of videos that show you how to work with SNAGIT and YouTube. This is ideal of teachers thinking of flipping their classes.
There is no doubt about my choice if you were looking to do something more professional. I have used Techsmith Camtasia for over 10 years now. All the videos on this site were created using Techsmith Camtasia. Here are some videos to get you started with Camtasia. It is a tool that an institution might choose to use if they were flipping their classes or a teacher might use if they already had some knowledge of how to screen cast and edit video.
