To create a video, you have several choices to meet your needs. First of all, most computers come with a built-in video production and editing software program albeit basic. The type of software you have on your computer depends on the operating system. Second, remember to provide closed captions for all video productions. If you need a Webcam and/or headset with mic, they're available for check out from the Burke' Library's Circulation Desk for 1-2 weeks. (See the presentation on the hardware available for checkout on the Ed Tech page.)
The Faculty Development Center (BL112) has Camtasia Studio 9 video production and editing software installed on two computers in the Faculty Development Room (BL112). This license also comes with SnagIT, an image capturing and editing tool. Camtasia Studio and SnagIT are TechSmith tools, which offer great video tutorials. To learn about the best practices for video production, see the PowerPoint presentation on Camtasia Studio below.
For PC users, here are your alternative options:
For Mac users, you have Apple's QuickTime Player (quick capture) or iMovie (video production and editing) installed on your computer. See how-to guides in the box below.

For online courses, we recommend creating your own unlisted YouTube channel to share your videotaped lectures for storage, as the media files will be very large. This will make the sharing and posting of content to your courses easier. Most of the Theology graduate department has done this. Speak with Drs. Carmody and Viscardi who are e-leaders on creating unlisted YouTube channels! See video tutorial below to learn how to correct automated captions on YouTube---if you enunciate clearly, you won't have to make many corrections afterward.
