What is Camtasia Relay?

Camtasia Relay is a lecture capture/recording solution that allows you to easily record and share presentations, lectures, meetings, and mobile video from virtually anywhere.

How does it work?

With just three clicks, you can use Camtasia Relay to capture and share your knowledge quickly. Simply press record to capture audio, on-screen activity, and keyboard/mouse input during lectures, presentations, and meetings.

YSJ staff – for more help and information on using Camtasia Relay see the Resources & Downloads section on our website, or contact a member of the Technology Enhanced Learning team.

What is Fuse?

You can use Fuse in combination with your mobile device’s camera to record your teaching & learning experience. The Fuse app allows Camtasia Relay users to upload new or existing camera videos to their Camtasia Relay server right from their iOS device or Android phone.

What about Teaching & Learning?

Recording lectures provides institutions with useful learning resources and enables learners to access content on demand.  This has obvious advantages for distance learning, revision, and re-use of materials.  With corresponding advances in technology, this practice is becoming increasingly popular with many lectures now being stored on institutions’ servers.

York St John University supports the use of technology to enhance the student experience. Multimedia content provides students with the opportunity to engage and re-engage with academic ideas and concepts at a time and place of their choosing. Increasingly, tutors are using video technologies to provide formative and summative feedback, to create and distribute video lectures and to record live lectures or seminars.

How much does it cost?

Camtasia Relay is available free to YSJ staff & students. Fuse is available free from the App Store and Google Play store.


YSJ staff & students can visit the Technology Enhanced Learning website for more information.
