Video Editing in Studio
Studio allows you to edit video through the Record - Screen Capture tool. This tool is essentially Screencast-O-Matic, and there are a variety of editing tools within it. To access these tools, you will need to do a recording within Studio. Open Studio from the Global Navigation or within your Course Navigation. In the upper right corner of the screen click on the Record button, and select Screen Capture.
If this is your first time, you will be prompted to download and install the screen capture application.
After installing the screen capture application, record your screen capture video. Learn how to record screen capture videos.
When finished, click Pause, then Done. Click Edit to access the editing tools.
Here's a screenshot of the editing interface:
