Add your name to interactive video?

Is this possible?

I want to make an interactive training where the student can type their name under the "fill in the blank" and their name appear in the training. 

For example if the students name is Jane:  She would type her name on the beginning screen and the next screen would say Welcome Jane.

If not, do you know of a work around?

Thanks for your time.

Hi there

Sorry, but Camtasia is not capable of that. You might want to investigate Adobe Captivate if that's what you are wanting. That's easily done using Captivate.

Cheers... Rick :)

Thank you for your time and response. I had captivate, but I didn't really care for it.  Again, thank you.

if you want to personalize the video, there are a couple of "ways" to sort of do what you want; but it's only practical if there are a small number of students, and you know their names in advance

advise if curious ...

one method ...

do a very short into video that has maybe a callout re [welcome to whatever], a single caption [student's name], with end action set to go to URL [the actual training video]

this intro video would be very tiny, and you can edit the student's name in the config files, so only have to produce the intro video once; edit the launch html's name for each individual student and give them that link; you'll have to host one intro for each student, but only 1 training video

if you prefer, you could have each student's name in a callout instead, edit the name in project, or in the tscproj file, and produce for each student; since file is so small, these productions take almost no time
