Jing Project: Visual conversations start here
More about this material
Chris Sorensen (Faculty)
I've found Jing to be very useful in creating short videos explaining assignments to students or to create "how to" videos on technology applications (e.g. how to create a hyperlink in PowerPoint).

When I click the "Go to Material" link, it is supposed to take me to the project (jingproject.com). I instead am taken to the Jing website. There, I can locate a series of tutorials. Is this correct or was I supposed to be able to view a tutorial that you created?
Laurie Tenzer (Faculty)
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.
Angela Gunder (Faculty)
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.

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.
Dorinne Banks (Librarian)
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.
