Description

In this short course I teach you the basics of using Camtasia Studio to produce good quality multimedia recordings right out of the gates without any prior knowledge or experience.
The course is taught in laymans terms without the use of any technical jargon consisting of 19 short, easy to understand videos.
This course will eliminate the usual fear and reservations usually associated with taking on a task such as this by providing the necessary knowledge and skills needed without overwhelming you with unnecessary technical skills and terms.
For someone just getting into video production, this course will give you a much needed short cut to understanding the software and to success.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is most suitable for people who are new to, or have a very basic knowledge of video recording and who would like to learn the basics in order to start producing their own video recordings for distribution.
  • You need not have any prior knowledge of camtasia or any other form of media recording to make full use of this course.
  • If you already have a basic working knowledge of Camtasia, this course is probably not meant for you, however it might still teach you a few tricks or skills that you did not know about.

Enjoy!
