Earlier this year, KUMC licensed and began pilot testing Camtasia Relay for making podcasts. Camtasia Relay is an easy-to-use desktop application that records whatever is on your computer screen and whatever you say into your computer microphone. Once recorded, these audio and video files are automatically uploaded to a webserver for immediate online viewing by your students.
You can use Camtasia Relay to:
- Capture your lectures for later student review, as make-ups for absent students, or to better reach online students.
- Create short podcasts as enrichment materials on advanced or optional topics which cannot be covered during normal class time.
- Make a screencast to demonstrate software features or provide instructions for doing a complicated task within a computer program.
- Have your students create podcasts as an assignment, instead of a traditional term paper or group presentation.
Join us for an introduction to and demonstration of Camtasia Relay, including the pilot testing experience of several KUMC faculty who are currently using Camtasia Relay for podcasting.
