ChromeOS has no provision for using application programs such as Camtasia. You would have to talk to Google to see if they have plans to open up Chrome to outside developers- from what I have read, this will be a limitation going forward.

Is the question about using Camtasia Studio on Chromebook, or just capturing from Chromebook to do a tutorial? If it's the latter, then you can do this using a VGA or HDMI capture device.

I am trying to watch a Camtasia lecture for class, and have found that neither Chrome OS nor Android OS will allow this. Looks like Microsoft and Apple will keep the College student market cornered...
