Description

In this course I will share with you my 5 years experience of creating online content mainly in Camtasia Studio. I tried to talk only about the things which are needed, I don´t want to overwhelm you with tons of unnecessary info.

Lector

Although I have a degree in Economy and Marketing I have been now teaching IT for more than 10 years. Mostly MS Office, computer graphics and Google tools. I worked for a non-profit company where I created new courses, publications and brochures. Among many, my task was to choose, which software to use for our e-learning application. I was testing Adobe Captivate and Camtasia. Well, to be honest, Camtasia have won because of its simplicity. I also wrote scripts for the videos, I recorded and edited audio and video so I know the whole production process. 

I am also a musician and composer. I have a band called Trio de Compostela, I am a choirmaster too and I sing in the local theatre classical music in the choir.
