The return of screen capture and webcam recording!

Welcome back to MIIS and welcome back to the DLC!

Today we hosted a Camtasia 2 workshop for some Translation and Interpretation students and it’s likely that you might want to learn the very simple and straightforward way to screen-capture and record video via the webcam as well. Camtasia 2 is a great piece of software that allows you to record entire presentations—including recording your computer screen, your voice, and/or a video of yourself talking, and then edit it with text, photos, and external media to have a completely polished movie on your topic.

Be sure to come visit us in the DLC if you’re interested in learning more.


  • Schedule an appointment or drop-in between the hours of 12pm and 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. Camtasia 2 is installed on all of the DLC laptops and in the two recording booths. Click here to reserve a recording booth.
  • Tutorial: Getting Started with Camtasia
  • To teach yourself about the program before you come in, try going to to review a tutorial video about it or other software packages we offer in the DLC.

Hope to see you soon!
