TechSmith SnagIt

Want to record video or audio from your desktop?  TechSmith Snagit provides basic recording and editing functionality and is available to the U. of T. community.

Below is a short video that contains information on how to create a video using TechSmith SnagIt.


Recordings can be created, stored and delivered using MyMedia, which is the U. of T. Libraries' streaming delivery and storage solution and is available to all U. of T. faculty, students and staff.

Note: It is not recommended to show videos during an online session. Instead, you can provide students with a link in the chat window to view a short video during the lecture. Or, preferably, provide students with a link so they can view the video before or after the lecture.
