Hi, I'm new to recording with camtasia. I'm a teacher and I want to use it in making online courses, the problem is that I'm confused how to use it. I want to make just like the videos in the link below but I don't what method he uses, does he use slides or something else, how do texts appear . I know that he uses whiteboard and a tablet for writing and highlighting but I don't know what he uses for making texts appear in that way. I want to make videos just like him. Could anyone of you explain it to me?.Thanks. The video "watch our first lesson" in the link below

He is doing it all in PowerPoint.

When you install Camtasia it offers to install the Camtasia add-in to PowerPoint for recording your PowerPoint presentation/slides.

Click images to enlarge

When done recording you can bring the recording into Camtasia to do further editing if you want to.

You can also just record your PowerPoint presentation/slides with PowerPoints record option
then export the recording to video.

As far as him drawing the red lines, That can be done using the pen tool in Powerpoint when running the presentation.

There are tons of PowerPoint how-to videos on Youtube that you could learn from quicker than trying to be explained here in the forum
