Camtasia Studio 8

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:  Carry out all steps of the demonstration in sequence and jump from one application to another without interrupting the recording process. You will be able to stop recording with a hotkey combination at any time, at which point the software renders the input that has been captured, and applies user-defined settings, such as when and how to display the cursor. After the presentation has been captured, the presenter is able to revise it by cutting and/or pasting different parts, as needed. In addition, the presenter is also able to overlay their voice, as well as sound effects or music onto the presentation. Camtasia allows audio recording while screen-capturing is in progress, so the presenter can narrate the demonstration as it is carried out. Most presenters, however, prefer to wait until they have finished the screen-capture, and then record the narration from a script as the application is playing back the recorded capture. Camtasia also allows the generated video stream to be exported to common video formats which can be read by most computers, even if the Camtasia software is not installed, such as MPEG-2 or MPEG-4. Moreover, distribution of exported videos can be done using the Camtasia Player, which supports a variety of video formats and does not require user installation.

Class targeted to:  Those desiring information about Camtasia and who will need to build effective multimedia presentations.

Prerequisites:  Must be familiar with the basic operation of the Windows operating system, Internet Explorer and with basic computer terminologies.

CEUs:  Upon successful participation in class and completion of all assigned exercises, each participant may receive up to .7 CEUs for this class.
