Splitting tracks in Camtasia

If you ever recorded a lecture in Camtasia (or any other app), chances are that you faced a dilemma when saving the recorded file. Since lectures tend to be typically long (45 min or more), the resulting file (mov, mp4) end up often being too big. This can be a problem, especially if the goal is to upload the lecture to the cloud (Box, Canvas, YouTube, etc.). A reasonable solution is to split the lecture into parts and save each part as a separate file, then upload each file separately to the cloud.

Live Captions in PowerPoint and Google Slides

This post describes a way to record live captions when creating video lectures in PowerPoint and Google Slides. It should be noted that uploading a video lecture to YouTube and manually editing the “machine-generated” captions is still the best option as far as quality of captions is concerned. The method described in the video below does not allow one to edit the captions once the video is created. For more information, please visit the links below:
