Educational videos have become an important part of higher education. Educators can integrate multimedia content such as instructional videos for delivering content in many online/hybrid classes. The challenge for educators is understanding and exploring how best we might produce teaching videos and use videos as an educational tool effectively.

Upon completion of the workshops, participants will be able to identify the opportunities, challenges, and tactics of producing high-quality instructional videos for teaching and learning.

In the basic workshop, we will introduce:

  • download and installation of Camtasia with HKU Campus License
  • basic features of Camtasia
  • recording, editing and sharing your first screencast
  • video editing basics
  • audio editing basics
  • adjusting clip speed
  • using the PowerPoint add-in
  • exporting and sharing your first video

In the advanced workshop, we will introduce:

  • selecting area that you want to record
  • resizing your window using Sizer
  • adding annotations and transitions
  • creating advanced animations
  • making it snap with magnetic tracks
  • adding sound effects
  • leveling volume
  • including music
  • sharing projects with others
