Camtasia Studio has been proposed as suitable applied software for doing so. It is a multi-media, user-friendly environment, providing the customers with the variety of possibilities for editing PowerPoint presentations with the introduction of audio, video and different animations, in order to make teaching/learning content more interesting and to point out the most important issues. It allows computer screen video capturing, and adding of audio and numerous animated effects to it, as well as augmenting video recordings into the Camtasia project(s). Even though the proposed software tool possesses a broad palette of advanced features for recording and editing ?lively? and edifying recordings, within this paper only brief descriptions of ?reviving? classical PowerPoint presentations, taking the screen captures over Transas demo ECDIS software, and their editing is presented. Several examples of instructional recordings concerning ECDIS operational basis, and possibility of students? self-evaluation have been given, too.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.07.03.08}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), Maritime Education and Training (MET), Teaching ECDIS, Camtasia Studio, ECDIS Software, Operational Use of ECDIS, Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC), Multi-Media} }
