Turn Ordinary Video into Extraordinary Teaching with TechSmith Relay and Camtasia

Concurrent Session 1

Brief Abstract

Learn how colleges are using video to improve student engagement and social presence in online courses while addressing accessibility requirements, all without breaking a sweat!


Shane Lovellette has more than 25 years of experience with video and media. His passion began in high school when he used video to recreate the assassination of Julius Caesar for a Latin class project. Since then Shane has participated in the disruptive changes video creation and consumption have experienced, from democratization of high quality cameras built into smart phones and non-linear video editing, to easy online distribution for worldwide audiences. With a B.S. in Television, Radio and Film Production from Syracuse University, and an MBA from Michigan State University, Shane is focused on how to use video effectively for teaching and learning in higher education. As a Strategy Lead at TechSmith (a software company that makes Snagit, Camtasia, Relay, Morae and more), Shane works with higher education faculty, instructional designers, and IT administrators to understand their unique problems and figure out innovative, yet easy ways to solve them.
