About Snagit

Snagit is a desktop software for both Windows and Mac that lets you take screenshots, edit your images, and record lightweight screen recordings. It’s perfect for giving feedback, creating clear documentation and training materials, and showing others exactly how to do something. Step-by-step instruction guides on the Learning Technology Support website are illustrated with screenshots created using Snagit.

Snagit is a “no frills” screen recorder – for more polished video clips, use Camtasia.
