Our team is trying to decide whether Camtasia will meet "all" of our needs.  We all currently own a copy of Snagit and I have previously created online assessments using Camtasia (10 years ago) However, we need an app that will do interactive simulations and quizzes. My problem is I can not find any 1-2 mins demos using Camtasia and displaying all of the new features.  Youtube has great pics and powerpoint like videos using Camtasia however I'm looking for "interactive simulations and quizzes."  Do you know where I can get demo that simulate something simple like how to add a button the QAT or open a file and the quiz them? I have to present Captivate, Camtasia and Storyline in 2 weeks to our team along with a recommendation.

For interactive simulations and quizzes, plus other eLearning methods, we chose iSpring Suite for its features, ease of use, and price. Built an entire eLearning system using PowerPoint and iSpring. Camtasia is excellent, but I would recommend looking at eLearning tools for simulations and quizzes.

There are some interactive/quizzing capabilities in Camtasia, but that is not it's forte -- Techsmith just hasn't expanded that featureset like people have hoped.

I've used Captivate in the past for the interactive/quizzing functions, and published to an LMS from there -- but use links to launch Camtasia videos when needed.

Hear here!

I heartily second and applaud that move. But only because I know and use Captivate. Articulate Storyline may do just as well, but I'm unfamiliar with that product. 

Cheers... Rick :)

TechSmith produced a very simple and basic example of a quiz, but it's for the previous version of Camtasia and doesn't show all the new features. However, it gives you an idea of how the produced video can look with a quiz. https://www.techsmith.com/tutorial-camtasia-8-quizzing-2.html

In the new version quizzing has been enhanced.

You could try make your own following the tutorial and using the free trial...?

If I find anything else I'll let you know.

Cheers, Jayne

Where can I find a sample video that includes a quiz or survey so I can see what it looks like?
