How To Take This Class

Course Overview

In this Camtasia Studio training course, students will learn how to quickly create visual demonstrations of just about anything (computer software or soft skills training) and post the completed lessons on the Web or burn them to a CD. Students will see how to include screen captures, use animation, audio, video, quizzes and surveys. This training course covers Camtasia 9 and Camtasia 2018 (due to differences in the user interface, previous versions of Camtasia are not covered in this course.)
