about

Including v.8, this text covers all of the skills for building effective multimedia presentations for creating screen-captured, software based tutorials, demonstrations, and lectures using Camtasia Studio (and prior versions). It uses the complete line of TechSmith products for both Windows and Mac OS and a companion DVD with support files that includes over 30 tutorial video clips, project practice files, all text images in color, and sample video creations. The strategy for this text is to introduce concepts from the ground up to include development milestones, planning the presentation based on the targeted audience, story boarding, screen captures, editing and production based on the desired project. The text also covers Snagit to create sophisticated training documents using advanced image editing features and it uses Jing to make fast video presentations that can quickly be loaded on the Web. Completing the text will provide the reader with all the skills needed towards developing an array of rich multimedia based curriculum in any educational setting.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good coverage but has poor proof-reading...if any. This is a fair book that could be a lot better. For someone that is familiar with Camtasia this book is quite good, but for the new user the glaring errors will cause many WTF? moments. The book suffers from two issues. 1) it looks like "auto-correct" and "spell-check" were used with blind faith resulting in many words being substituted for others ("maker" being used instead of "marker" for instance), this makes the reader pause. It also reduces confidence in what is being described by the authors.; Not as glaring is issue 2) in places it seems like the book has either been written by an English as a Second Language author, or has been translated from another language. The writing is awkward in places. If there is ever another edition of this book I hope they employ a really good proof-reader! I would recommend this book, but with a caution!
