Camtasia Recording - Training Faculty
We wanted an audio podcast for an instructor and decided to train him. The first trouble we ran into was the size of the mp3 file that the Camtasia timeline export produces: 80Mb for 2 hours.
Without adding steps the only way to do this was to create a custom production profile. 11.025kHz, Mono, 16kBits/sec made the two hour lecture about 10Mb in size. This was good enough for CTools upload.
The quick-start guide for the instructor needs to improve:
Currently: Well illustrated; 3 pages long; single section
Improvements: 1 page; sectioned (prep, post-class)
