Camtasia Studio is a screen recording and video editing software. Camtasia lets you record your screen and voice as you demonstrate applications on your computer. If you’re using the PC version of Camtasia, you can use the PowerPoint plugin to record and share your presentations. Camtasia not only lets you record your screen, but also lets you easily cut and edit the video, import other video and audio files, and overlay text, callouts, and transitions. Once you finish editing your video, Camtasia makes it easy to share your video by exporting it to your school’s Learning Management System (LMS), as an mp4 video file to embed in PowerPoint, or publish directly to Youtube, Vimeo, and Google Drive.

APSU instructors typically use Camtasia for the following:

  • Recording Lessons - Record lessons that students can access at any time and replay as necessary. This works well for ESL and special needs students.
  • Providing Feedback - Provide feedback to students by recording audio, or video and send it to them in an email, or upload it to an LMS.
  • Lessons for Substitute - Leave messages, or recorded lessons for your substitute while you’re out.
  • Audio Recording - Camtasia can record and export audio…it isn’t limited to just recording video. Once you record your audio track, you can export it into an mp3 sound file to use for lessons or for a podcast.
  • Flipping a Classroom - Record your PowerPoint lectures and post them online for your students to view outside of the classroom.
