YouTube is a video-sharing website owned by Google. Users can upload videos (lecture capture, tutorials, assignments, etc.) to the site and share them with as many or as few users as they choose. Faculty and staff are encouraged to use YouTube as an option to store video content they create and share with students. YouTube can automatically generate closed captions for videos uploaded to the site, but may require editing. Videos uploaded to YouTube can be viewed on smartphones and tablets, as well as laptops and desktop computers.
Faculty, staff, and students can create a YouTube channel for free, with unlimited storage using their Mocs+ Gmail account. For instructions on how to stup a YouTube channel, upload content, and create captions please refer to these tutorials:
Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac are software suites for the creation and editing of videos. Camtasia can be used as an enhanced screen capture tool, allowing for video/audio capture, visual additions, and closed-captioning creation. Videos created using Camtasia can be saved in a variety of formats and uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, Mediasite, or posted as an MP4 file to Blackboard.
For more information about Camtasia, please contact the Walker Center for Teaching and Learning or visit the Techsmith website: https://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.html.
Camtasia seminars are offered monthly by the Walker Center for Teaching and Learning.
