Jing

Introduction

Jing is software that you can use to capture screen shots and/or video demonstrations (up to 5 minutes). Jing gives you the option of saving your screen captures and videos to their server at Screencasting.com or on your own computer (or server). Once saved, screen captures and/or videos can be added to presentations, student assignments, or course websites.

The benefits of multimedia instructional materials for students with diverse abilities and needs are significant. Jing can help you create these learning opportunities for all students.

Reviews

Every e-Tool in the e-Toolbox was reviewed by either a UDI Online Project research and design team member, or one or several faculty at five partner institutions who incorporated a specific e-Tool into an online or blended course they taught. Faculty from these partner institutions also requested that students review the e-Tool included in a course or products created through the use of the e-Tool (e.g., documents, videos, audio clips, or other items). Likert scale surveys with open-ended questions were used by respondents.  Feedback from the reviewing UDI Online team member or faculty who used a tool is presented in addition to student ratings when available.
