About the Author
David B. Demyan is an instructional designer and screencast producer, busy delivering
courses to organizations and developing e-learning materials for clients. Using Camtasia
Studio since the early days of the product’s release, he was hired by TechSmith to author
the help system that accompanies the software. With each Camtasia Studio release, he
gained expertise in using every feature. He has hosted training classes for industry,
government, and educational organizations showing how to use Camtasia Studio to teach
or inform.
Over the past 10 years, he has specialized in e-learning consultation. As the owner of
Spectorial Corporation, he produces and guides others in the creation of software system
e-learning materials using rapid development tools, such as Articulate Storyline, Camtasia,

teaching has earned high praise from both clients and the e-learning industry.
He offers hands-on training in using Camtasia Studio for e-learning, with this book as the
primary text and additional resource. He can be reached at http://www.spectorial.com.
I gratefully acknowledge the expert help from the readers, reviewers, and editors, without
whose assistance this book would not have been possible.
