Snagit Screen Capture Software Review

Snagit Screen Recording Program Logo
First of all let it be said there is a lot of screen capture software out there. Some are terrific and save you time. Others, not really. Filtering all the incoming information is paramount to finding the right solution!

As a Full time parent, class teacher and part time Trainer, saving or losing time could be a ‘make or break deal’ when it comes to selecting the tools I use.

That being said I am very positive about Snagit and the possibilities of its use within my own personal projects, training projects AND as a tool enabling me to more effectively ‘Flip’ my class. As the owner and editor of a blog and YouTube channel sharing resources with teachers I’m always looking for the next ‘big thing’ that will transform the way I deliver content. Techsmith has already impressed me with their Camtasia Editor and I’m now ready to try the full licensed version of Snagit. Another program part of their brilliant suite of products.

A lot of your videos are probably too personal to share online.

Maybe a new baby was born in your family, maybe you filmed your honeymoon and some of the shots are... well, too cheesy - whatever. You simply don't want to share these videos online.
