One of the main difficulties in web-based communication is that each person is looking at their own screen. Often, it is just so much easier to share you’re screen with someone else. Whether picture or video, Jing “adds visuals to your online conversations!”
Jing (website here) is a free download that lets you easily capture pictures or video and share them instantly with other people. Start by downloading the free program from their website (runs on both Macs and PC’s!). Use the easy menus to capture still pictures or videos right off your screen. Jing provides you with a simple link: just copy and paste to share your multimedia with students, friends, or family! Upgrade to Jing pro (for a fee) to share high quality video on youtube and other video sharing sites.
- Screen capture
- Hosts all the multimedia for easy sharing
- Instant sharing with others
Jing has a TON of uses. Easily show students, parents, or family members how to complete tasks. Create slideshows from pictures, or use it to collaborate on multimedia projects. Easily posts to twitter or facebook! Best of all, its easy to use!
We’ve started to incorporate Jing into our help-calls. Using Jing, we can quickly create a video walking users through a specific problem. Instead of sending the whole video, we only have to share the link through Screencast.com. How are you using Jing?
