In this video, Dr. J shows students an easy approach to formatting bibliographic citations using Purdue Owl. Captured and edited with Camtasia as a standalone project. The file was:

  • Started on a Windows PC;
  • Zipped (via Camtasia) for use on a Mac;
  • Shared between users via Box; and
  • Uploaded to Canvas Studio for captions and sharing.

Media used:

  • Scrolling captures
  • Still captures
  • Additional PNG image files

Tools used:

  • Split at playhead (for cuts)
  • Frame extensions (for freeze frames)
  • Annotations :: Title cards and callouts (e.g., arrows, boxes)
  • Camtasia Screen Recorder :: Scrolling captures
  • SnagIt :: Scrolling and still captures
  • Cursor Effect :: Spotlight
  • Transitions :: Fade (primary), blur offset (Voilà @ 5:18)

Timeline:

  • Six picture tracks
  • Two audio tracks (bottom)

Isabel's fun tutorial video for Spanish 1.

I added it to my Spanish 1 class this week to show students how to share their progress in Duolingo with me and get Extra Credit for their Duolingo practice. 

I recorded it on my phone and edited with Camtasia. I know it could be more polished, but still 🙃

Isabel,

I think it's very polished.  You could add a fade at the end so the music doesn't end abruptly and maybe let the "Let's Get Started" text linger a few seconds with a transition.  Really great vibe and as you said fun.

Good point, Aaron! I did notice my video was ending abruptly, but I was not quite sure how to make it longer. I am still fumbling my way around Camtasia 🙂 I will try your suggestion of a fade transition. Thanks!!

Aaron, well said!

Hi Isabel,

You'll see what Aaron is talking about in the video to be showcased today at the Brown Bag — I've included a link to the video below. The video uses a fade out at the end:

  1. The music fades first, and then
  2. The Delta logo slowly fades.

I also like to add (what we call) "slug" at the very end of a video to give a longer "tail." This is easy to do in Camtasia using the annotation that is a black rectangle. (Also, if you post videos to YouTube, it delays the part where YouTube covers your video with a bunch of other stuff!)

Here's The How to Video:

For the HOW TO video, here's a screen capture from Camastia showing the end of the video:

  1. The music fades first, and then
  2. The Delta logo slowly fades, then
  3. Slug.

Thank you @vivie-sinou!

We had one of our best-ever brown bag sessions today for Camtasia Cohort. Very excited for Spring semester.
