Make your best videos using Camtasia!

Camtasia Mastery is for everyone who uses Camtasia to make videos on their Windows PC. From beginners learning what the program is about, to experienced users who want to learn how to learn more about combining animations and using the new behaviors in version 9, this course has loads of information for learners of all experience levels. From beginners to long-time users, you WILL learn how to best use Camtasia.

The Camtasia Mastery sections are divided into several bite-sized videos. If you're new to Camtasia, just follow the order of the videos for lessons that build on previous information. If you're experienced with Camtasia, jump to any of the topics you need help with. Most videos are only a few minutes long but the course is packed with over 7 hours of instruction. You can get exactly what you need, when you need it - no more scouring hours of videos to try and find the one nugget of information you need.

Post your questions. I reply to most student questions and comments within 3 days (usually faster). The best questions get video answers. I will create a video to fully answer great questions. Video answers (and questions) will be shared with all students in an optional section at the end of the course.

If you are creating training videos with Camtasia 9, you will learn tricks and tips to save you time and make your videos look great! Enroll now and I'll see you inside the course.
