Camtasia Studio and Screenflow

Camtasia Studio and Screenflow are a complete classroom capture solution that are fully integrated into the room itself.

Camtasia Studio and Screenflow seamlessly record and synchronizes audio, video and data output from any presentation device (notebook, document camera, smart board, etc.) and instantly turns it into an online, rich-media presentation. Students benefit from the web-based player with the instructor video and everything that the instructor showed on the computer.

Camtasia Studio and Screenflow are great for showing software or creating any type of training to be captured for on-demand playback.

Podcast Technical Help, Creation and Delivery

A podcast is a digital media file that is pushed to end users over the Internet so that they access the file on their computers or portable media players, like iPods.

Many educators are using podcasts as a way to distribute lectures and other course work and information so that students can access and listen outside of the classroom.

OME can help faculty create, edit, and distribute podcasts.

Individual technical support and consultation
