Camtasia is a fairly powerful option for editing video and audio all Drexel faculty, active adjuncts, and staff and highly recommended. Students cannot get a license for Camtasia.
You can screen record from your computer while capturing audio and webcam video with it, and it has a number of features.
Getting a Camtasia License
If you would like to get the latest version of Camtasia or upgrade your existing version, you will need to attend an online training session with DU IT (formerly Drexel IRT).
Online Camtasia training involves reviewing 10 videos online and 1 document and taking the Camtasia Proficiency Quiz, which will make you eligible for having DU IT set-up a new Camtasia license on your computer.
The DU IT training videos and document, and the Camtasia Proficiency Quiz, are all available at the webpage below.
NOTE: If you import a video clip into Camtasia, Camtasia now auto-adjusts audio levels. The original clip file’s audio levels remain unchanged.
