Recent research indicates that students really value recorded lectures to supplement their learning, and videos can stand in for you when you are NOT face to face with your students. It’s also easier than ever to get started with video development, with Camtasia! From a quick motivational talking-head style pep talk, a screen-cast showing a software application, to a narrated PowerPoint with additional images and effects, Camtasia is a robust program that lets you do it all.
In fact, there’s still room in the two beginner workshops scheduled for tomorrow, September 26th, at 9 and 10am. Don’t hesitate to get in on the fun, email firstname.lastname@example.org to join one or both workshops!
(NOTE: Camtasia is available for SJSU faculty and staff only. For students interested in video check out your options with Adobe!)
