The flipped classroom is a concept in education (see Flip teaching). Clintondale High School, in Clinton Township, Mich., is the first to fully embrace this concept in 2011 in an effort to raise the school's failing grades. TechSmith products were used as their primary software, and the company also gave the school a grant to start the program. Teachers record lessons online for the students to watch at home and then the students come to class to do their homework. The videos normally consist of an overview of the lesson, the content and concludes with a summary. Voice, video clips, images and annotations can be included via TechSmith products like Camtasia to enhance the lesson. Camtasia and Relay give teachers the ability to share their content on a variety of platforms. Students can view the lessons on any computer or mobile device. This gives the students more class time with their teachers to work through problems rather than trying to work them out alone at home.
The app allows you to transfer your projects to Screencast and edit them there. You will need an account for that on top of your Camtasia account. Both platforms provide free trials and subscriptions. Before upgrading, all your content will have a watermark in it. The label is hardly visible, so that won’t be much of an issue if you just want to enjoy the free software. However, if you’re going to attempt to do more professional work, you’ll want to spring for the upgrade and get the watermark removed.
