The Screen recording tool allows the users to record the desktop screen or a particular area of the screen to produce the lecture video. This type of recording is very good for the teaching where you need to share multiple resources (like MS word, PowerPoint, PDF or custom application) during your lecture. Screen recording approach is also employed for creating step by step tutorials.
CIT recommends Camtasia Studio 8 from Techsmith as it supports features for post production editing.
