Eduserv negotiates agreement for Camtasia Studio for HE and FE
28 January 2010
Eduserv has negotiated a special deal on the popular screen recording software, Camtasia Studio, on behalf of universities and colleges in the UK and Ireland.
Negotiations with software creators TechSmith began at the Educause conference in Seattle in October 2007, after Eduserv received requests from a number of universities and colleges for a Chest Agreement for the resource via our Wishlists.
Eduserv has been negotiating preferential licence terms for the academic community on software and information resources since 1988, with 60 Chest Agreements currently in place saving universities and colleges £28m per annum.
This new agreement for Camtasia Studio is the only one of its kind in the world. Institutions will save one-sixth of the price of a perpetual licence for the software. Institutions will make substantial savings over the three years of the subscription agreement whether they currently have Camtasia licences or not.
The Agreement runs from 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2012 and institutions can sign up for three-years at any point during that time. There is a minimum order of 100 subscription licences with larger quantities receiving greater discounts. The software is available through a choice of four resellers.
Howard Moody, Business Development Manager in Eduserv’s Licence Negotiation team, said: “I am delighted to have been able to secure this popular product for universities and colleges. It has become a useful tool for lecturers to record their teaching sessions and put them to such uses as distance learning.”
