Happy Saturday! I have created a quick tutorial on how I am using Camtasia. I have the free 30 day trial and this software has revolutionized the way I can share, teach and learn. I made this almost 5 minute video showing how to create a screen recording with audio. I will be making a web cam enabled video tomorrow on the self promotion blog post and I wanted to share with you how easy this software can be to make basic online tutorials and more. I am still learning the functionality of Camtasia and if you have any hints or tips, please let me know. You will notice how awesome the audio sounds and how wonderful it is to really share a quick how to taking only like 15 minutes to create...
As I mentioned in the video, I am using Audacity for the audio. The Audacity link is below and if you have any questions on how to use that, maybe that will be my next training video.
Let me know in the comments what you think! Happy Hunting!

I was asked to provide a quick review of Camtasia and thought using my blog would be the best way to share my thoughts on this software.
I am using the 30 day free trial through TechSmith's web site (see link below) but I am definitely going to purchase this software. I am a total newbie on creating video content but I am working on some initiatives that are requiring me to get up to speed quickly on producing, creating and sharing video content. I love the idea of sharing more though my company website and blog, too. It is always great to put a face and voice with the content we read and learn from on the web. As an educator, I am pretty skilled in speaking in front of crowds, large and small, and was interested in sharing this aspect of my personality with my clients, potential clients and, I guess, the world at large.
Using Camtasia was simple and painless. The software provides for much more advanced activities, such as creating a presentation with video and more audio and other add ons that I am going to be trying once I get my updated microphone equipment and other items I ordered based on the advice in the article included below on teaching online equipment.
Once I have my updated equipment, I will even do a quick tutorial video on how to use Camtasia as a newbie user and I think you will all be as amazed at the software as I am. If you own a small business and want to connect with your customers better or you have an amazing talent you want to share with the world or if you just enjoy creating videos/movies and sharing them, this software is really functional, easy to use and creates amazing results. Stay tuned for more detailed review next week! Happy Hunting!
