Camtasia Studio and Beyond: The Complete Guide by Stephanie Torta, Stacey Dunbar

Including v.8, this text covers all of the skills for building effective multimedia presentations for creating screen-captured, software based tutorials, demonstrations, and lectures using Camtasia Studio (and prior versions). It uses the complete line of TechSmith products for both Windows and Mac OS and a companion DVD with support files that includes over 30 tutorial video clips, project practice files, all text images in color, and sample video creations. The strategy for this text is to introduce concepts from the ground up to include development milestones, planning the presentation based on the targeted audience, story boarding, screen captures, editing and production based on the desired project. The text also covers Snagit to create sophisticated training documents using advanced image editing features and it uses Jing to make fast video presentations that can quickly be loaded on the Web. Completing the text will provide the reader with all the skills needed towards developing an array of rich multimedia based curriculum in any educational setting.
