How Do I Do Screen Capture

Screen Capturing

Computer screen capturing is a snapshot of your computer screen. Capturing and recording what is on your computer screen for students can be a powerful visual teaching tool. It can be either a still image, or with special software, you can capture and record activities on your desktop with audio narration and speech bubble enhancements. IPFW currently supports Camtasia.

Camtasia is available from the IPFW network. To download and install this application on your campus computer, you must be connected to the network. Go to Start > IPFW Applications > Employee > Multimedia and click on Camtasia.

SnagIt is also available from the IPFW Applications menu in the Start Menu. A set of tutorials is available on the TechSmith web site.

The Academic Computing Consultants with ITS User Technology Support group can help you get started or answer questions you have about learning to use these applications. To schedule an appointment with an Academic Computing Consultant contact the ITS Help Desk at 481-6030.
