With more than 16 years experience in creating screencast eLearning courses, Camtasia powers the course creation efforts of some of the world’s largest brands, including eBay and the American Cancer Society.
Experienced developers are drawn to Camtasia’s flexibility and editing capabilities, which beat out many competing authoring tools in terms of the types of videos you can create. Camtasia is also highly customizable when it comes to the visual effects and interactive elements you can include, as well as the types of file types that can be imported and exported when creating, translating and localizing an eLearning course.
Although the user interface is somewhat technical and may require patience from inexperienced course developers, one of the biggest reasons developers use Camtasia is because it allows videos of unlimited length, which is a frustrating limitation for course content that can’t easily fit into a maximum time limit.
Camtasia also allows users to publish videos directly to YouTube, which is ideal for developers that want eLearning course content to reach an international audience via the social video platform. Additionally, integration with PowerPoint and other essential business/education software allows Camtasia to leverage third-party solutions to bolster its own platform experience.
