A fantastic learning system. The free version is mainly just vocabulary lists with a really good automated review system, but the paid version has the kind of lessons you would get from an accredited language course.

I use Camtasia for demo videos, explanatory videos and also for client support. With so many projects being computer-based these days, the ability to actually show what's happening on your screen is so important. Having done computer support over the phone many times, it's often impossible to accurately describe what needs to be done in a way that newbies can understand... but anyone can follow a visual example. When offering support for my web apps, my clients are blown away when they get a personalized video with me reviewing their issue, and they can see how I solve it or hear/see the explanation. I use it almost daily.

Pros :

  • Easy of use.
  • Adding media to the timeline is easy.
  • You can add animations, call-outs, text, transitions... all in a very easy to use manner.
  • Upload integration with YouTube/Vimeo makes publishing super easy. Easy to use green screen, just use the "Remove a color" option in video properties.
  • Decent audio noise cleanup and volume levelling for quiet parts.
  • Built-in library of templates is awesome... it has both built in themes, animations and rights-free audio that can be safely used on YouTube.
  • The ability to record both screen and webcam simultaneously is great.
  • Using green screen, you can overlay your talking head in the bottom corner explaining just like live instruction.

Cons :

  • Lacks layering of chroma keying for green screen (you can only pick 1 color and then adjust variance).
  • Although there are adjustments for the color removal, without the ability to add color removal in layers for different shades... you really need to get the lighting done very well.
  • Also, older versions did not support the proprietary file format MTS (on some older Canon camcorders), but more recent versions do.
  • Sometimes opening projects made in older versions does not correctly "upgrade" the project to the new format, leaving the old project unusable.

Wikispaces Classroom is a great tool to create wiki pages for collaboration and students’ participation. I use it with my students, I created groups and assigned students to different groups for a specific topic to be researched. The privacy setting allows me to manage who is allowed in the group, which is an extra safety step when working with students. In addition, students work on real time so I can see their progress, read their interactions and collaborate to their group discussions too. It is a very user-friendly wiki site, suitable for middle school, high school and educators who are tech savvy. The websites you'll create in Wikispaces are organized with hyperlinks and searchable tags. There is a seven minutes of video tutorials on Wikispaces.com’s help page to guide beginners how to create and to share their wiki pages with an audience. Each wiki page has a name, a tag and it can be edit, add to and add members too. Each page has an edit button that provides a few options such as: to insert pictures, to create links to other pages, and more. Wikispaces classroom allows students to insert avatars, widgets, videos and any other web 2.0 applications or audio files to improve their wiki pages. This is really a great opportunity for teachers to incorporate technology into their repertoire, for students to develop 21st-century skills and to align your curriculum to Common Core Standards related to technology. Please remember to review your Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) for the district you work for to ensure proper online safety and behavior.

Pros :

  • Teachers can create an account with their email, so students do not need one.
  • The teacher has full control of students groups and privacy settings.
  • Students learn to create their own wiki web pages, and to demonstrate and publish their work.
  • Encourages collaboration in a safe learning environment.

Cons :

  • Free wikies have ads on sidebar.
  • The teacher has to follow a process to unsubscribe from this adds.

    I think this program focuses too much on spelling words. I would like to see more opportunities to identify correct words by clicking on them. I would also like to see a short skit/cartoon illustrating the activity and using the vocabulary in context. Then we could practice with words and pictures. Spelling words should come much later in the learning process.

    The app is also refreshingly clean and simple to look at, so there’s very little to distract you from the business of learning. However, you may find it a bit dry, which, let’s face it, may be an issue, particularly if you have bad memories of language class from your school days. A Wi-Fi or mobile data connection is needed to upload your data, by the way.

    What do you like best?Super easy to record a video / demo, and then edit. Solution includes really useful video and audio effects like cropping or zooming if your recording area changes during recording. I use this software to record any/all webinars that we host, as well as to record demos of our product features. We then publish to services like Wistia which allows us to track usage of those videos on our website. What do you dislike?There are some limitations on file types that you can edit or export to. But rarely is that an issue for me

    Over the past eight years, Wikispaces has become a teacher favorite, a site where educators can set up blogging posts for their students. The company didn't originally see itself as an "education" company.

    When looking at both sites, I really like the look and feel of Babbel, but I don’t like the cost and I don’t like the lack of languages I want to learn.
