TechSmith Corp., a Michigan-based company and the world’s leading provider of screen capture and screen recording solutions, awarded 339 Michigan schools, and Michigan Virtual, more than $2.3 million in multimedia software through the TechSmith Michigan K-12 Software Grant Program.
Michigan Virtual plans to deploy Camtasia Relay, the TechSmith lecture capture solution, to deliver content to their network of more than 560 local and intermediate school districts and nonpublic schools with more than 70,000 online course enrollments. President and CEO Jamey Fitzpatrick said the software will help demonstrate how Michigan Virtual is applying innovative teaching and learning strategies in its online courses.
“We believe Camtasia Relay will help our instructors further increase their presence in the online classroom, allowing them to create short, just-in-time, screen recordings meant to provide commentary, feedback and guidance to students as a group or individually,” Fitzpatrick said. “Challenging assignments, student performance and general announcements can be delivered quickly and easily, helping the students, parents, teachers and school staff who use our resources.”
