Lesson 8: Media Authoring Session

There are many available tools for creating media, some commercial, some open source. The following lesson (recorded using camtasia) will show various types of tools to help you create media, such as videos, tutorials, podcasts, screencasts and mashups.

Please note that you will not be able to hear the audio for some of the demos shown in the recording. However, if you want to revisit those demos (to hear the audio) you can view the powerpoint option listed underneath the camtasia link. This contains the links that I discuss in the camtasia version.

This session will also show you how to use freely available software to quickly create your media using:
  • Windows Movie Maker (included on PCs) to make a movie
  • Jing (to freely create screen captures and to snap screen shots)
  • OneTrue Media (to freely create mash-ups using images/videos and then add music, effects, transitions)
