Use Camtasia to Create Microlearning

Training departments everywhere are moving to microlearning. Informal, short, on-demand training videos are now the go-to choice for computer skills. Learn to create these quick videos with the ideal tool for the job: TechSmith Camtasia.

In this 3-hour deep-dive you will learn how to create a custom, re-useable title sequence with branding, record a high-quality, professional “click and talk” video demonstration of software skills, and publish your results to any video server or website. With a little practice, you will soon be cranking out microlearning videos wholesale.

Who Should Attend?

  • eLearning developers who are new to Camtasia
  • Managers, instructional designers, and others who need to understand Camtasia
  • Anyone who is new to eLearning and needs to get started with Camtasi

Where is this class held?

This is a live, online class led by a field expert; and just like an in-person class, it is fully interactive and engaging. The difference between an online and onsite class? No travel! You can participate from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Many of our students choose to stay home from work on these training days, some never even changing out of their slippers! Where applicable, students are able to speak with and hear from the instructor and other participants throughout the course as they work in real-time to complete activities.

Overall, I thought it (Adobe Captivate: Building the Perfect Project Template) was a great class. Kevin did a wonderful job engaging the attendees.
