Room S30B, Wilson Library
Camtasia Relay (a.k.a. Class Capture) is designed to capture live workshops, presentations, training sessions, conferences, or meetings and make them available to watch later. Camtasia Relay records your audio and whatever happens on the computer screen, such as demonstrations or Power Point. The OIT (Office of Information Technology) supported software connects with Media Mill for storage and re-purposing of recordings (such as flash video, YouTube, iPod and more).
In this ninety-minute "TechShop" (part technology demonstration and part discussion) we will explore specific examples of how Camtasia Relay is used and consider ways it might fit into your work life, such as recording a training session for a student employee who can't make it for the live event, to create a short video on a procedure to teach another staff member, or to record a library workshop so users can go back over content. The recording can also be embed into a blog, web page, or guide. Coffee and cookies will be available to sweeten our interests and our discussion.
Two ways to participate:

Spring TechShops are the second phase of the highly successful Fall 2009 Emerging Tech Expo. This spring, the IT (Information Technology) Council and Staff Education and Development (SED) are sponsoring a series of five technology workshops to further explore the application of technology within the Libraries environment.
