Course Description

Student Feedback:

"One of the best courses I've taken. Succinct, well made, covered off the major points that I needed to know in order to get straight in and start using the Camtasia programme."

"I'd bought Camtasia 6.0 back in the day, didn't really use it much as I never really got to grips with the basics. Found the editing and timeline stuff so bitty and difficult. Years later (now) and I buy the upgrade Camtasia 8.0 and thought the interface looks better and cleaner, but still didn't feel too comfortable using it, but was willing to spend time learning it because I want to teach courses via Udemy. A couple of weeks later and I somehow come across a promo for this course. It does exactly what it says on the tin. In the few lessons (27 at time of writing) it has got me up to speed and to the point that I feel truly comfortable just doing it...capturing my screen or presentation and then editing it quickly and without a load of fuss."

"Well done...I highly recommend this course. P.S. There is one other tip given in this course that truly knocked it out of the park for me and that I wish I'd known about 3 years ago...but that's life! " Gareth Thomas

"This Course is The best. I joined Two Courses Before But this one is the best."
