Does anyone know a solution to create video courses on Linux, i.e:

  • recording in the same time the videos from the webcam, the powerpoint / openoffice document, the annotations on the document (using electronic whiteboard) and my speech
  • a way to edit after creation to remove / add new video sequences

Try using RecorditNow. Can use ffmpeg or recordmydesktop as backends.

GTKRecordmydesktop (desktop recording software) and Pitivi or Avidemux (programs for video editing). – user2648 Nov 27 '10 at 9:43
