CS8 boot campWe are excited to once again share some news with our Camtasia Studio users about upcoming training! TechSmith alumnus Daniel Park is holding several boot camp classes to help users learn about Camtasia, along with loads of useful information about screencasting productivity. Three classes will be offered this time around, available on both Windows and Mac. Each class will be held over two days in late March or early April, near Detroit, MI.  If you’re an enthusiastic beginner or intermediate-level learner who wants to create top-drawer tutorials and marketing spots, then these courses are for you!

  • Camtasia for Mac (New course!):  March 28-29, 2013 in Romulus, MI
  • Camtasia Studio 8 Basic Training: April 1-2, 2013 in Romulus, MI
  • Camtasia Studio 8 Advanced Topics: April 3-4, 2013 in Romulus, MI

What will you learn?

  • Basic Training Boot Camp is a healthy mix of theory and practice, focusing on learning the general functionality of Camtasia Studio and its standard workflow of record > edit > produce > share. While we’ll be working on stock projects in class, the more intermediate and advanced users are encouraged to bring and work on their own projects, where I’ll be available to assist, and may even use your project as a class example.
  • Advanced Topics Boot Camp picks up from Basic Training, cementing basic concepts while exploring new areas like video hosting, equipment, and third-party software. The Advanced Topics Boot Camp is entirely learner-driven. Registrants will be surveyed ahead of time about their current needs, the gaps in their knowledge, and what they’d most like to take away from the course. We then custom-create a specialized curriculum based on this information, and devote the entire first day of the workshop to addressing these topics to the benefit of all.
