Online Learning provides a copy of Camtasia licenses for any instructors who have completed the Online Instructor Orientation (OIO) and is using the license to develop content for fully online (WEB) courses. Campus instructors, remote instructors, and staff will need to speak with their dean about purchasing a license through IT (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you cannot get a Camtasia license, you can consider using other tools to record your screen.
