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. Below is the tutorial for capturing a screen presentation, but for a more full list of Kaltura tutorials, please check out the link below the tutorial.
