One of my favorite free tools on the web is a screen capture tool called Jing. Jing allows you to create images and video tutorials from your computer screen. If you have every received a video tutorial from me via email… it was created with Jing.
Below is a video overview/demo of Jing:
NOTE: Video capture is now included in the free version of Jing.
- Use Jing to snap images of your computer screen to use in student directions.
- Annotate screen captures with text, arrows, and highlights
- Use Jing to create videos from your screen for course lectures or web tours. (5 minute limit)
- Share Jing videos easily using Bb or YouTube.
Here is a great tutorial for getting started with Jing: Jing Tutorial
The possibilities are endless. I use Jing almost everyday for something. So, download Jing and let me know what you think: Free Download
