Discussion for Jing Project: Visual conversations start here

Jing is a very useful tool for showing online learners videos and screenshots of how to do something. It is especially useful when teaching computer science, web development, or design classes.
Sometimes there are bandwidth problems with the free version. Videos can be no longer than 5 minutes. This issue can be avoided with a subscription.

Jing is fabulous for having both instructors and students capture screen visualizations, but is highly limited by the amount of time for the recording (5 minutes or less) and the lack of the editing features of free competitors such as CamStudio. Still, given the price tag and ease of access, it serves as a potential tool in the instructor tool belt for giving students another channel for dialogue and meaningful feedback.

This is a much-needed tool to educators today. It can be used to cue students to impoprtant parts of documents or web pages and it can be used to give virtual guided tours. The technology is easy to use, largely becasue of the minimalist design.
Download to functioing in about 2 minutes.

The Jing tool is one that I have used for years. I find it so helpful in the courses I teach---I show students how to access materials in the online classes, I use a Jing video to demonstrate an issue to my IT department....it's fabulous!

It took me some time to realize that all there is to this entry is the link to the Jing tool itself. There needs to be some instruction around this entry. Perhaps providing an example too.

I was disappointed in this resource because it was simply a copy of what could be found on the product website.
I love using the product, Jing, for short screencasts.
I think that this would have been a much more effective learning tool if it incorporated screencasts in the tutorial--demonstrating how Jing works.

This is a good application. The free version only gives you a small amount of time to make your point (5 minutes). You will need to be concise when recording your video.
