Customised computer training in Microsoft, Adobe and other Software

TechSmith Camtasia Training Courses

Camtasia is primarily used as a screen recorder and editor, capturing your on-screen activity and turning it into engaging videos.

It is like using a video camera to record your screen, however, the Camtasia software is installed on your computer so your screen captures are done inside the computer.

Camtasia can capture the entire screen, a specific window, or a user-defined region. Screen capture videos can be recorded with or without voice narration and can be annotated after recording.

Camtasia Studio gives you the tools to not only record your computer screen but you can then turn those recordings into professional-grade videos incorporating title clips, transitions, graphical arrows, text callouts, video clips, photos, music and narration.

Once you’ve edited and polished your creations, you can share them.

With a TechSmith Camtasia course at Keystroke Learning, you start with the basics and go right through to become an advanced level user.

If you have never used Camtasia, you will be guided through the fundamentals. Advanced users will make full use of Camtasia’s capabilities.

Our courses are led by highly skilled and qualified trainers with years of experience. Our hands-on Full Day, Half Day, Workshop and Live Online Training courses mean that you will leave with practical experience and useful tips and tricks.

If you require 1 on 1 or group bookings to fit your schedule, contact us to discuss your needs. We also offer customised courses for your needs.

We provide in-house TechSmith Camtasia training nationwide and we are based in Melbourne, Australia.

TechSmith Camtasia FAQ

Who uses Camtasia?

Camtasia is frequently used for creating video tutorials and presentations. These are created directly via screencast, or by using a direct recording plug-in to Microsoft PowerPoint. The user’s screen can be recorded, and audio can either be recorded at the same time or added separately from any other source and integrated.

Camtasia started out as a screen capture application but it has since evolved to integrate screen capture and post-processing tools targeted at both the educational and information multimedia development marketplace.

Key features of Camtasia:

  • Screen Capture
  • Behaviours – allow you to apply animations to text, images or icons
  • Animated backgrounds, icons and music tracks
  • Motion graphics, including lower thirds and intro slides
  • Cross-platform collaboration to work with both Mac and Windows

These are just some of the features available in Camtasia, but of course there are many more.

Should I buy a Camtasia for Dummies style book or attend a Training Course?

Have you ever wondered why the Dummies books are so popular? Well, it’s probably because so many of us are self-taught, using Google to find out how to use a function, or we are shown how to use software by someone at work. Although this can be useful, it also means we tend to spend a lot of time with trial and error, or we are just picking up somebody else’s bad habits. Trial and error unfortunately involves a lot of error, and the bad habits you pick up will probably be passed on to the next person, so soon they spread across the business, meaning entire teams can end up working inefficiently.

At this point, you might head to the bookstore or do an online search to find a Camtasia book to help solve some of those tricky issues. That’s a step in the right direction, and we sometimes use reference manuals ourselves. The problem is that trying to learn by trial and error may cost you many times the cost of a good training course.

Our Camtasia courses are designed to target the key features and tools included in the various applications to help you get back to work and apply them right away.

Why should I attend a TechSmith Camtasia Training Course?

Attending a TechSmith Camtasia course with Keystroke Learning will show you how to use the most efficient methods to achieve your daily tasks. Not only that, but you will discover best practices and shortcuts to make your business tasks even quicker, so you can get on with your day. Our goal is to help you get to the point where you are focussed on the task at hand rather than the tool you are using.

Typically, one of our experienced trainers will walk you through the features and functions of the software, then you will try them out on your own, with tips and guidance on getting the best out of the features. We also encourage participants to ask lots of questions to help you get the most out of your learning experience.”
You’ll receive a manual to take away at the end of the course, as well as exercise files so you can practice later, or just to jog your memory when you need.

Where are you based?

Keystroke Learning is based in Melbourne, Australia. Most of our training courses take place in the Melbourne CBD, but we also provide TechSmith Camtasia in-house training nationwide.

What if I need help after my course?

We’ve got you covered. Every course we run comes with post course support. Just contact us using the support page, or email us at support@keystrokelearning.com.au. We will do our best to help you out if you run into a problem.

Can I record the screen and computer audio and the microphone all at once?

Camtasia can do all three at once. You just need to make sure that your screen region is selected. Then check that both your built-in audio and your system audio options are selected. Once this is done, you can record all three at the same time.

Can I create a Quiz in Camtasia?

Sure can! Open the quiz view bar on your time line. (Keyboard shortcut – Q). In the quiz menu, add a name for your quiz and your questions and answers. Click the add button for more questions. Customise your question type (Multiple Choice, Fill in the Blank, Short Answer, True/False). Once you are done, select one of the Produce and Share options with the interactive capabilities you need for the quiz.
Choose your export options and how you want to record your results. (SCORM for your LMS is a good choice). Save your production and you are ready to go. When the quiz point comes up in your production, the Quiz option pops up at the bottom of the player.

I want to use Camtasia content in my LMS. How can I do that?

Once you have created your video course, click on the Share – Local File. Place a title in the Export as and choose Export to MP4 as the file format. Ensure that the Include Quiz and Include SCORM boxes are checked.

Click on the Options button beside include SCORM and fill out Title, Description and Subject details needed. Select the version of SCORM, then set your passing score and completion requirements. For example, you can set a passing score of 75%, so that the learner must get 75% of questions correct to pass, and a percentage required of 100%, meaning that the entire video must be viewed.

Return to the previous screen and click Export. Camtasia will export a Zip folder that can then be uploaded to your LMS.

How can I add a hotspot?

If you want to link to a website from your video, or allow viewers to replay or skip certain sections, then an interactive hotspot is exactly what you need. Interactive hotspots can direct viewers to different sections of your video, give them replay options, or launch a website.

A hotspot is an effect, so it must be applied to an asset already added to the timeline. Click and drag the Interactive Hotspot effect from the Video FX tab onto the timeline or canvas to the media clip, shape, callout, or text annotation you need to set.

With the asset containing the hotspot selected on your timeline, open the properties panel and edit the Interactive Hotspot section. When entering a URL or Time, don’t forget to press Enter to commit the changes. Several options are available:

  • Pause at end: The user must click the hotspot to continue viewing the video.
  • URL: Opens a web page when clicked.
  • Marker: The video jumps to a marker in the video.
  • Time: The video jumps to a specific frame.
  • Click to continue: The user must click the callout to continue viewing the video.

How do I book a course?

You can fill in your details on our booking form but the easiest way is to give us a call on (03) 9999 7780 and let us take care of all the hard work.

What if I want to customise a course?

If an Off the Shelf solution is not quite what you are looking for, training courses can be tailored to the unique requirements of your team. Our courses are modularised with this option in mind, which means that you could mix and match from a selection of existing topics, or we can work with you to develop something specific to your organisation. Either way, we are on hand for advice about the best way to structure your customised training course.
