Yesterday I announced Techsmith's "point-1" release of Camtasia Studio 8. It was a small list of feature upgrades -- but what an upgrade. It was chock-full of the feature sets many of us in the industry had been clamoring about for the last few years. Then, there's this:
As if perfectly timed, today I'm totally jazzed to announce the final approval -- and public release -- of my new online course "Deep Dive" Screencast Training: Camtasia Studio 8 (for Windows)* on the hugely popular Udemy learning website. (This release, by the way, comes just a few short weeks after having been awarded approval and public release of a similar course for Macintosh users: "Deep Dive Screencast Training: Camtasia for Mac".*)
*(Note: Current members of the Digital-Know-How.com program should NOT purchase either of the courses above. Current Digital-Know-How students will receive a coupon for free access later this week. Also, current subscribers to ScreencastingWizard.com as of Friday, June 21, 2013 will receive a special discount code at the end of the week.)
The course syllabus is listed on the course description page (above), but suffice to say that the 9+ hours of video-based learning (Camtasia Studio) and the 7.5+ hours of learning (Camtasia for Mac) didn't stop with the fundamentals. In each course I went far beyond the fundamentals and included special topics that dug in to practical applications and special formats for delivering various types of screencasts. Including:
- Mindmap presentations
- Whiteboard presentations
- iPad Screencasting techniques
- High Def Picture-in-Picture screencasts
- Scripting, and a few more related to hardware and software components to pull it all off.
So there you have it: there's nothing now to stop you from creating that online course you've been thinking about
Of course, the Digital-Know-How.com program will remain the more comprehensive program. Enrollment there continues. But, the new Udemy courses parses specific topics for those who are looking for a subset of the full program. And, as I said before, which ever learning path you follow, the fact is, you have knowledge accumulated from many years in your profession. Your expertise is something of value that a niche audience is likely willing to pay for. Chances are: you have an audience... they just haven't heard from you...yet. Let me know when you're ready to get going.
