Content Development Tools

Camtasia (Fee-Based)

Camtasia is an industry leader in screen recording and presentation creation. Licenses are available for purchase through the USF computer store. Alternatively, you may book one of our faculty workspaces equipped with Camtasia and all the necessary equipment for creating presentations. Camtasia is relatively easy to learn but we do recommend enrolling in our fully online workshop, Camtasia Foundations.


Kaltura is a versatile media hub enabling creation, storage, and display of video, audio, and images. Instructors craft tailored content, embed quizzes, add chapters, and curate playlists, tracking student engagement via robust analytics. Auto-generated captions with interactive transcripts enhance accessibility. Explore our Kaltura tutorial library to help you get started.

Audacity (Free)

Audacity is a program for recording and editing audio files. If you are not familiar with audio editing programs we recommend that you email us to schedule a training session.


Flip is a video discussion platform where instructors can post topics and students can respond with short videos, increasing creativity and student engagement. Important: Please note that Flip has been recently acquired by Microsoft. For more information, please visit the following page. As we learn more we will keep you posted. In the meantime, faculty can contact us to discuss video-based discussion options.
