Camtasia Upgrades

Recently, Camtasia released a beautiful new update. While this does mean the original discount agreement we had with them has ended, we’re looking into reestablishing a new one. For the time being, though, there are no guarantees on getting them back. Check out this thread on what people think about the new features in Camtasia 9!

Free Resources for Projects

Kristen Palana shared an excellent list of free resources, including music, images, and videos. These are all royalty-free, and she also gives some great general on advice when you start thinking, “Is it okay for me to post this image?” Thanks for sharing, Kristen!

The Harvest Time Challenge: Update

We’re about halfway through the month! If you’re in the challenge, we hope you’re doing well. There are over 150 participants, and the Studio has been lively with feedback coming in left and right. We’ll be asking for feedback so that we can best understand how to help you through the course creation process. Keep going, and best of luck!
