Screen Capture Software

Screen capture software is a program that uses your computer as a camera. Try to imagine the screen capture software as your digital camera and anything displayed on your computer screen is what you would like to take a picture or video of.

Screen capture software such as Snagit can be used for taking pictures of your computer screen and can enhance your image with effects or directional arrows.

Screen capture software such as Camtasia can be used to create video tutorials of your screen and can add effects such as animations, sounds, or quizzes.

We now offer here at San Jose State University two screen capture programs for current faculty and staff members. Click on a program below to learn more about what each software has to offer and be sure to complete a request form if you would like to receive a license key.
