  • To create a new project:
  • Camtasia

    1. 1. Camtasia Rob Bourne
    2. 2. Learning Objectives <ul><li>By the end of this session you will: </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the functionality of Camtasia </li></ul><ul><li>Have an awareness of the key concepts </li></ul><ul><li>Recognise the tools and how they are used </li></ul><ul><li>Be able to produce ‘learning’ resources utilising the various tools and features </li></ul><ul><li>Transfer what you have learnt to what you want to do </li></ul>
    3. 3. What is Camtasia? <ul><li>Details of the company (Techsmith) </li></ul><ul><li>Trial version available </li></ul><ul><li>Educational license (approx cost £180 for 6 licenses) </li></ul><ul><li>Screen capture software </li></ul>
    4. 4. Before the fun part…
    5. 5. ADDIE model <ul><li>The ADDIE model is a systematic instructional </li></ul><ul><li>design model consisting of five phases: </li></ul><ul><li>Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Design </li></ul><ul><li>Development </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation </li></ul>
    6. 6. ADDIE <ul><li>Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>During analysis, the designer identifies the learning problem, the goals and objectives, the audience’s needs, existing knowledge, and any other relevant characteristics.  Analysis also considers the learning environment, any constraints, the delivery options, and the timeline for the project. </li></ul>
    7. 7. ADDIE <ul><li>Design </li></ul><ul><li>A systematic process of specifying learning objectives.  Detailed storyboards and prototypes are often made, and the look and feel, graphic design, user-interface and content is determined here. </li></ul>
    8. 8. ADDIE <ul><li>Development </li></ul><ul><li>The actual creation (production) of the content and learning materials based on the Design phase. </li></ul>
    9. 9. ADDIE <ul><li>Implementation </li></ul><ul><li>During implementation, the plan is put into action and a procedure for training the learner and teacher is developed.  Materials are delivered or distributed to the student group. After delivery, the effectiveness of the training materials is evaluated. </li></ul>
    10. 10. ADDIE <ul><li>Evaluation </li></ul><ul><li>This phase consists of (1) formative and (2) summative evaluation. Formative evaluation is present in each stage of the ADDIE process. Summative evaluation consists of tests designed for criterion-related referenced items and providing opportunities for feedback from the users.  Revisions are made as necessary. </li></ul>
    11. 11. Design principles <ul><li>Usability </li></ul><ul><li>Accessibility </li></ul><ul><li>Consistency </li></ul><ul><li>HCI </li></ul>
    12. 12. Library usage of Camtasia <ul><li>Searching for books </li></ul><ul><li>Database search </li></ul><ul><li>eJournals </li></ul><ul><li>Any more? </li></ul>

    16. 16. Exercise 2 – Recording <ul><li>Record the example PowerPoint provided </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Aim for about three minutes </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Create a screen capture </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Aim for about five minutes in length </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Select an application that has ‘complex’ functionality e.g. UEL Plus, EndNote </li></ul></ul>
    17. 17. Editing <ul><li>Decouple tracks </li></ul><ul><li>Use split to cut out sections of the timeline </li></ul><ul><li>Top and tail timeline </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Using the inpoint (green) and outpoint (red) </li></ul></ul>
