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's screen capture tool works great for capturing lecture presentations. Keep in mind that the editing tools are basic, so if you need more sophisticated assets and editing features, check out Camtasia.

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.

Microsoft Stream (Free)

Similar to YouTube, Stream is a media hosting platform. It offers auto-captioning and a number of approaches for embedding video content into your course. Stream is accessible within your USF Office 365 catalog.
