JING-le Bells & Whistles

Posted by nancyscofield on October 26, 2008

Okay, so let me start by saying that I LOVE this cool (and FREE) tool called Jing. You can download it here. Did I mention that it’s free? Choose your OS, Mac or Windows. It’s super-easy to install. While you’re getting it set up, be sure to register for free accounts on Flickr.com and Screencast.com if you don’t already have them.

Let’s start with a simple “how to get started” training, shall we?

Here’s an incredibly cool way to enhance your Jing screencasts–allow viewers to add comments! This video shows you how.

Here’s a helpful blog with instructions to embed your Jing screencast into a blog entry.

And here’s a short screencast showing how to use the text tool on still images.

Time to play…..what can you Jing today?
