  • Introduce myself & the course
  • Class introduce themselves
  • Extras are some fun additional things and a chance for us to take a break from our work and look at some other useful tools.Our class is small which might mean we zip through the work a lot faster. I’ll have to gauge our course speed as we go and we’ll sort it all out as we go. If there are things you’re interested in spending some time on from the extras, or maybe something else, let me know.If you have real-life projects you want to work on in the class, it will be a great opportunity for you to do them.
  • These are the products we will cover in class. The wiki has other free products that you can try. There are other products available as well, that are proprietary and are lower in cost.
  • SnagIt & Camtasia’s pricing has stayed stable. Captivate’s has increased $100 since version 5.I can’t find that Presenter’s pricing varies for education, but you would think it would.Adobe has $19.99 monthly subscriptions to their products. They also have a $29.99 Creative Cloud subscription, but it doesn’t include Captivate or Presenter. It’s good for other image, animation, and web work.Mark DuBois (here at Institute) is a good person to talk to about Adobe products.

  • This was free until recently. Insert frowny face emoticon! Nice piece of software allowing WMV playback on Macs. Worth buying if you’re a Mac person. Might be worth a web search to see if it can still be found for free.
