    UPCOMING WORKSHOP: "Using Camtasia in the Classroom" by Dr. Carl Nelson

    Camtasia is an audiovisual screen capture tool that provides the opportunity for relatively flexible and full-featured lecture capture. It can be used for archiving in-class lecture/discussion as well as pre-loading content in the spirit of the "flipped" classroom. Techniques for using Camtasia will be discussed as well as some alternative tools and extensions (such as Camtasia Relay, a more classroom-dependent lecture capture service). Benefits and limitations of this technology for teaching will be explored. Registration is not required.

    • Omaha Campus: Tuesday, April 22, 2014 / 12:30 -1:30 p.m. / PKI 250
    • Lincoln Campus: Thursday, April 24, 2014 / 12:30 -1:30 p.m. / SEC 237

    About the Speaker: Dr. Carl Nelson is associate professor of Mechanical & Materials Engineering. His research interests lie broadly in the areas of robotics and mechanical systems design and analysis, with a specific emphasis on medical applications. He has several years of experience using Camtasia in the classroom.
