I am so excited about Jing!!! I’d heard the name mentioned once or twice before as a good screen capture tool but I had no idea how easy it would be to use and how clever it is. I think it will be invaluable for preparing for the conference presentation – I’m hoping to have live access to sites but it always pays to have static versions available – but I think the possibilities are endless.
One of the first things I will do is make a video showing people how to post a review for the Reading Cafe site which I can email out to everyone. The only thing I’m not sure of is whether my laptop has a microphone built in. I didn’t think so but in my test video (see A new post below) I could hear the keys tapping. I guess it would be worthwhile getting hold of a better microphone anyway.
Now all I have to conquer is actually embedding videos in a blog. I tried several times to embed my first Jing but have only succeeded in linking to it…which is ok I suppose but I really want to make it look proper! I’m having the same issues with Youtube…is it me, my blog or what???
