What Participants Are Saying
"Before taking this class I had never used Camtasia or anything like it. After today’s class I can create slides, add audio, and do some editing. I even learned how to edit voice-overs. This class gave me basic skills that I can build upon and the confidence to create more complex Camtasia movies on my own."
