Using Jing to Simplify Tasks

Last week I learned about Jing, a free online software you can use to add images to blogs, narrate vacation photos, or take a 5-minute video of what you are doing on screen.  To quote the website, “it’s the fastest way to show what’s on your screen to others.”  For instance, one of the success stories on the website is about a librarian using Jing to teach students how to use the catalog. She created a short video as she moused around the screen showing students where to click and what to type where on the catalog.  This way she could walk around the room and help students use the catalog while they were watching the video. 

If you would like to use Jing to create videos with a webcam, Jing Pro can be purchased for $14.95 a year.
