I'm a new Instructor here on Udemy. I have spent alot of money on buying courses that claim to teach how to technically create an Online course. After, completely only 20% of this course, So far this is the best course you must get, if you are considering making online courses and use screen casting. Thank you so much for that course. You are the best.

A very professionally produced course, full of great information and explanation. Well worth the discounted price that I got it for. I recommend this to anyone who wants to learn how to use Camtasia.

I have only recently just started using Udemy, and have already completed a few courses. As I plan to produce a few myself, and having no clue how Camtasia works, I invested in this. Firstly, this course fully covers Camtasia studio, and then some. So if you are looking to learn how to use it to its full potential, look no further. Above this, for me at least, this is the course against which all other will be measured. Mel is completely engaging, and the production quality along with all the different visuals make this course stand out above any other I have completed. It caused me to rethink how my courses should be presented and delivered. The downside is that I have now spent a bunch more money on a mic, a camcorder, a clapperboard, a graphics tablet...but hey, if that is what it takes to produce this kind of quality, it's money well spent. Thank you, Mel, for such an excellent course.

This is a great course. Mel is an excellent instructor that walks you through step by step how to use Camtasia. I used Camtasia before and knew the basics but he takes you through all the features in detail to take advantage of the power of Camtasia. He is an excellent instructor that is able to take complex tasks and breaks them down into understandable lessons. I wish he made more courses. A great investment!

I guess we know Camtasia is the favoured program for producing videos. Mel goes the extra mile, anybody that wants to produce pro videos or teaching videos this is a must have. His knowledge of Camtasia is above average, He also teaches us to avoid the stuff that annoy people. For anyone that wants tp produce pro videos or teach using Camtasia, this is not to be missed. And no I am not getting money for this review.

Incredibly knowledgeable, very professional (yet personable) and thorough. This instructor models what you're learning, so it's more than just what he's saying...it's what he's doing. Worth every penny. Thank you Mel! :-)

This is an excellent course on Camtasia that takes you from basics through to advanced techniques. I went through all the other Camtasia (for Windows) courses on Udemy before I did this one and while I learned something from each of them, none covered the software as completely and as expertly as Mel does in this course - so if you only do one course on Camtasia, make it this one! Mel is a very personable presenter who clearly knows his stuff and is passionate about sharing it. Not only that but you can see how much effort and work he has put into making the course as valuable to his students as possible. The video lectures are high quality and Mel's teaching is both thorough and engaging. He's given some very detailed answers to questions from other students and has posted updates to the course which I appreciated. Highly recommended. ...and thanks Mel for a great course!

Had some issues with the charge - nothing to do with the content. Mel responded immediately and helped me get it sorted - thanks Mel. As for the content - outstanding! I am not new to Camtasia, but there is plenty of great content for everyone. Great course.

The last version of Camtasia that I worked with was a few years ago--version 6. So, I decided to invest in Mel Aclaro's course and was delighted by the thorough coverage of material in Mel's deep dive course, his tips & tricks, and fun delivery style. I now consider myself well-versed in Camtasia 8--and would have been even if I hadn't already been exposed to Camtasia some years ago. Great job, Mel!

Mel - you are a true screencasting evangelist and enjoy your work! This powerful tool will drive eLearning portals and create a generation of tutors and instructors to share their experience and knowledge. Noteworthy is your belief in sharing, not holding stuff close to the chest. Grateful and thankful for a freewheeling course, The course is tastefully packaged, liked the nuances and the subtleties that spice up the content and the presentation. Well done! Looking forward to doing more courses under you !

Before I started this course I already have worked with CS8.x for a few months and produced/shared some videos on YouTube. And after watching the first few lessons I immediately could bang my head against the wall. Why did I not get earlier in this one. I would recommend everyone who is working with CS to buy this course. It's much, much and much…. (am I exaggerating now? :)) more valuable than the price you have to pay. Every lesson you watch is full of valuable information, tips and tricks. This course also makes you more creative thinking and brings up ideas to implement in your own videos or presentations I wish I had seen this course 6 months ago. It would have result to better videos in the beginning with a more professional look. For me there is still a lot to learn but this course has put me definitely in the right way!

This class teaches you 40 lectures of 11 hours’ worth of high quality training. I'm usually not one that goes and buys a software course online. But after downloading hours of YouTube videos of Camtasia 8, it still didn't give me the inner workings of how Camtasia 8 really works. Did I learn a lot from YouTube videos? Yes, but after taking this course I've learned 75% more of what I picked up on YouTube videos. Mel Aclaro is the man when it comes to Camtasia and screen casts training. New items are always being added to this course at no cost. Taking this class is a no-brainer do it you will not be sorry. Don Davis

Having recently spent $299 on Camtasia Studio to support my course-building activities, I wanted to make sure I knew how to get the most from my investment. John Colley of The Online Learning Podcast recommended the course to me and also has done an interview with the instructor Mel Alcaro. I am extremely please with how thorough the training is and how much I learned. My future courses - and all of my videos - will benefit greatly from having spent this time with Mel.

This is a really brilliant course and has helped me enormously. Not only has taking this course assisted in showing me how to use Camtasia including some of it's little quirks, Mel's style has given me confidence to work on my own course. He has a very natural, easy going approach which has inspired me to be the same when creating my own course. This is not meant to sound like a criticism, but I especially loved where Mel occasionally made little mistakes, and just moved on by injecting some humour or backing up. This helped me to know that my 'lectures' don't have to be completely 'perfect' and is a little more 'real' with a few imperfections. Also, whenever I asked a questions, Mel's answers were incredibly specific, detailed and comprehensive. I highly recommend taking this course!!!!! Well worth the money!

When I was contemplating on taking up this course, I was wondering whether it was worth it - since there was a library of explanatory videos by the Techsmith folks on their site. I am glad I did, because there is a steep learning curve with Camtasia because it is so feature rich. Mel breaksdown the lessons very well, and explains it in a manner wherein the content is easy to understand and builds off the previous lessons. His teaching style is relaxed and his vast experience shows through. I thoroughly recommend this course to any newbie starting off with Camtasia. Vikram

I wish all online courses were like this: professional, thorough and a complete pleasure to learn. I really appreciate all the effort that Mel has taken to put this together so well, and I am particularly impressed with how much I am learning about Camtasia... and I haven't even finished the course yet. It's very effective with the screencasting and "talking head" videos mixed in together: it makes it so much more personal, like I'm sitting in a classroom with him. And he's got a great energy and enthusiasm for the subject that inspires me to learn more. It's obvious he's both an expert in the subject as well as in elearning... perhaps he should teach a subject on elearning as well! Highly recommended.

¿ Tu inglés no es de lo mejor ? No te preocupes, la narración de Mel está totalmente apoyada por ejemplos e imágenes, y te muestra paso a paso como utilizar Camtasia y además magníficos consejos para crear screencast como un verdadero profesional. Se nota que a Mel le encanta lo que enseña, no sólo ofrece el curso, sino que también responde las preguntas con lujo de detalle. Excelente producción del curso. 100% recomendado ;)

Excellent "introduction" to Camtasia Studio 8. I put quotes around the word introduction because the course really goes beyond introductory material. Well worth the money and the time.

There are several Camtasia videos on YouTube, but it was worth a few bucks to have this complete end-to-end libary which covered all the essentials. Nice job. The pic in pic delivery of Mel's definitely draws you in more. I think video training tools, being less expensive to produce, will be in demand. We learn much better with verbal and audible tools which can be controlled by the end user. Thanks Brian

Been using Adobe Captivate for years so I am not new to this kind of presentation software, but am new to Camtasia. The depth of content here is great for newbies just starting out in eLearning content, but also very practical and appropriate for seasoned developers. Love what I've see so far!

Mel's experience with Camtasia is evident throughout this course. He provides tons of information on a wealth of subjects both in and outside of Camtasia. I'm pretty experienced with Camtasia and I still learned a lot. Mel has an engaging delivery and is actively involved with his students - answering questions and encouraging student action. He even updated the course within a few short days of the Camtasia upgrade (8.1) to include the new features.

This is a great coarse if you want to learn Camtasia, the host or the teacher Mel is very detail and thorough with his lecture, including very prompt with new training lectures when there is a new release with the software. I would recommend others to use these courses.
