Snag It Version 12

Snag It is a computer screen recording software that every faculty member should have in their tool box.  This page will explain where to get the software, how to use it, and the advantages it offers faculty.

Snag It allows faculty to capture their lectures, during which they can choose to record their screen or their web cam.  They can even take still picture shots.  The new version of SnagIt allows you to edit the video and trim unwanted portions of the video.
