Screencasting and Video Editing: A Simple Way to Create Engaging Videos

Thu, November 30, 2017 | 1:00–3:00
Education Building 7512, Burnaby campus

Screencasts allow you to combine visual recordings of the activity on your computer screen with audio narration, simple animations, annotations, and pre-generated drawings. They are an excellent tool to visually illustrate difficult concepts in a dynamic and engaging way—and are much simpler to produce than traditional videos.

In this hands-on workshop, we will introduce Camtasia, a screencasting program for Macs and PCs that allows you to easily edit and assemble imported media such as screen captures, video and audio. As an extra bonus, Camtasia offers the capacity to produce traditional videos via a much simpler interface than those available in programs such as Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere.
