Does the campus have a site license for Camtasia so I can use it on my own computer?
Yes, site licensing is now available for Camtasia and Snagit. TLP has Camtasia installed on all lab and checkout computers as well as two dedicated podcasting rooms. Faculty and staff can download Camtasia and Snag it here:
How do I upload my Camtasia productions to Blackboard Learn?
We recommend exporting as a full quality (High Definition) movie then:
- Publishing an unlisted video on YouTube which can be embedded in Bb Learn
- Directly embedding the video in Bb Learn with Kaltura
If you plan on making your Camtasia videos interactive then:
- Producing a SCORM object which can report time on task and grades on pop quizzes.
- Producing the "web" version and uploading to the Content Collection.
Each method has pros and cons, and it's recommended that you meet with a TLP consultant to determine what's appropriate for your class and content.
Does Camtasia run on a Mac?
Yes, it has a slightly different interface however is still highly recommended.
