Podcasting and Lecture Capture with Camtasia Relay
Originally, podcasting referred to online audio files which could be automatically downloaded to iPods by subscribing to feeds for those files. However, this term is now used to refer to any media file (audio, video, voice-over-PowerPoint, etc) that can be downloaded or streamed to any computer or mobile device. With our purchase of Camtasia Relay, KUMC faculty, staff, and students can easily record both audio and video podcasts, from their classroom, lecture hall, office, or home.
- Capture your lectures for later student review, as make-ups for absent students, or to better reach online students.
- Create short podcasts as enrichment materials on advanced or optional topics which cannot be covered during normal class time.
- Make a screencast to demonstrate software features or provide instructions for doing a complicated task within a computer program.
- Have your students create podcasts as an assignment, instead of a traditional term paper or group presentation.
What are some exciting and useful capabilities of Camtasia Relay?
- An easy-to-use desktop application records whatever is on your computer screen and whatever you say into your computer microphone.
- Once recorded, predefined user profiles automatically create needed audio and video files.
- An automated upload process places podcast files on a webserver for immediate online viewing by your students and others.
- ANGEL and RSS integration can provide students with instant notification when new podcasts become available.
- Send your Relay recordings to iTunes U, so students can play the recordings on their iPod or iPhone.
