I love Camtasia. But, I use the Mac version, which doesn't have quizzing as a feature. Is this in the works for Camtasia:mac?

It is a shame that this feature is not cross platform. You would think it would be rather easy to implement. Better yet, make it for all platforms including chomebooks and education will flock to this. With the huge movement to 1:1 devices, this would be a killer app!

really, no quiz in camtasia? I saw in this thread that goes back over 3 years, a product specialist said: "we are looking into this", at this point +1 year, would you tell me if its in the works?
Mac are perhaps #1 choice among prof. educators, so from a market perspective, add this feature, and release it as cam ver 3.
Also, honestly is the feature(quiz) in the Works, or put aside?

 Forget it Camtasia has clearly missed the boat on this if you are a mac user and you want to utilize Flipped lessons I don't encourage you to use this product.  Alt pathways

Echo360 update includes video capture quiz features  (I have not used it)

My work around is 
a) record the lessons using the App TeachPro
b) upload the lectures to the TopHat platform (it's an app)
build in your quizzes live there.  Tophat will grade it and push the grades to your Canvas or blackboard site or any other gradebook
c)  TopHat will also create a study guide based on your quizzes for students to use
d) The Professional Development is simply amazing at Tophat

I've actually deleted Camtasia from my mac.

I hope this helps.  Maybe if others post their solutions Camatasia will get motivated rather than posting  random replies every 6 months "We at camtasia are very concerned about this issue and are looking into it."  I wish I had a job where I could take 4 years to look into something.

What are the actual costs for both apps?

A suggestion for techsmith would be to offer the windows version for free to Mac users. I agree that looking into developing a product (that has a demand) for 4+ years is ridiculous -especially for a company that is sesnsitve and responsive to it's customer base.
