Our Sixclear LabVIEW Fundamentals course would not exist without Camtasia. It stood hands-down as the winner of our evaluation of screen recording software.

Sixclear, a LabVIEW instruction and development company based in Austin, TX, shares how it uses Techsmith’s Camtasia to provide LabVIEW courses online.
LabVIEW training can be difficult without the right tools in place. As a graphical programming language, LabVIEW uniquely benefits from the visual aid of watching an instructor stitch the code together. In a traditional classroom, this is straightforward, but Sixclear's LabVIEW Fundamentals course is delivered entirely in an online, e-learning environment. This wrinkle makes screen recording a necessary part of the offering.
The key solution has been Camtasia Studio, a screen capture software program provided by TechSmith, a Michigan based software company. TechSmith recently published a case study on Sixclear's use of Camtasia Studio:
Brian Spears, Sixclear's co-founder and developer of LabVIEW curriculum, puts it best: "We can honestly say our Sixclear LabVIEW Fundamentals course would not exist without Camtasia. It stood hands-down as the winner of our evaluation of screen recording software and validated our decision to invest a huge chunk of our time to develop and record the course."

Sixclear also uses Camtasia to connect remotely with customers, recording LabVIEW consulting and troubleshooting sessions, so they may provide customers a fully produced version of the session for review. Camtasia isn't only reserved for customers: Sixclear also uses the software to facilitate internal training, recording common tasks to create an internal training archive that any new hire studies.
“Video is an excellent way to deliver training, but the technical aspects of creating, sharing, and measuring video training can be overwhelming. Camtasia is an ideal tool for trainers—it’s easy to make effective, professional training content quickly,” said Shane Lovellette, Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac product manager. “And as Sixclear discovered, Camtasia can be used for so much more, including communication with customers, marketing content, and internal training.”
