SnagIt is a popular application for capturing screen images for use in printed documents or the Web. Most training materials produced by the IT Training and Assessment Unit are created using SnagIt and Word. SnagIt can also be used to record mouse movements and capture onscreen activity in the form of a video file or to capture text from a screen or the images from a Web site. This course provides an introduction to using SnagIt and will cover topics such as capture profiles, profile settings, saving in different formats, resizing images, using special effects and paint tools. The course will also cover how to create a set of instructions/practical documents using Word and the SnagIt captures.

Staff with little or no experience of using SnagIt who want to learn about capturing images or mouse movements from a screen to create a practical document or set of instructions.
