Camtasia 9, available screen 4K (3840x2160)

In older posts I read that it's best to shoot, edit en produce in the same size. Is that also the case if you shoot in 3840x2160? Because this makes the video very large.

What I tested:
1. shooting in 3840x2160, editing with canvassize 3840x2160 en producing in 3840. The result is very good on a 3840x2160 resolution and also on smaller resolutions screens. 
2. When shooting, editing and producing in 1920x1080, I get poorer quality in both 3840x2160 and also in 1920x1080 resolution .
3. shooting in 3840x2160, editing en producing with 1920x1080. The result is a poorer quality than everything in 3840x2160.

The video's will be for a software e-learning program. The video needs to be sharp. 

What would you recommend?

when create video for crisp and clear,  you must zoom or use 100% scale. it means  shooting, editing and rendering in the same resolution. but when create video in lower resolution and display on high resolution. it surely that poor quality.

in no. 3,  it's very sure that when  you shoot in high resolution and editing and rendering in low resolution. the quality is very poor. you must understand the concept  of shooting in high resolution and editing in low resolution. it's decent for use zoom and pan. when you zoom in 100% scale. your video look like original. but when you zoom out. video will smaller than the original. so, why it has poor quality.

No.2, it's poor quality because of you set low resolution in high resolution monitor. it like you zoom more than 100%. so video doesn't crisp and clear.

So my best option is to shoot, edit en render in 3840x2160? Because I only have these screens. 
Do you know how to make the video's smaller that it uploads easier for the viewers?

first, You must determine that what is your target like youtube or online course such as Udemy, SkillShare etc. if yes, 1920x1080 resolution is enough. You want to capture all of your screen? if yes, resize your screen resolution to 1920x1080. Then shooting (capture) your screen with 1920x1080 resolution , editing and producing with 1920x1080. your video will crisp and clear. When you are in editing process. you can resize your screen to 3840x2160 resolution.

after your work completed. you try to watch your video (1920x1080 resolution) in monitor 3840x2160 resolution with 1:1 ratio.
