Screencasting with Jing!

For those of you unfamiliar with Jing, let me introduce you.

We here at STS spend a lot of time teaching people how to use software. You know: the where to click, how to find features, what the hidden secrets of a program are, etc. Along with the face-to-face classes that we offer, we also have chat and emails services that allows UW Madison students to ask software related questions (it proves quite useful when students get stuck while working on a project). However, we have found that sometimes the answers to the students’ questions are to complicated to attempt to write out in an email or a chat.

Enter Jing.

Jing is a FREE screencasting software with Mac AND Windows versions that allows us here at STS to simplify our question answering service. We simply SHOW the student the answer to their questions by recording what we are doing on our computer screens, then send the video over. Bada-Bing-Bada-Jing. Questions answered. Jing also captures voice while recording the screen so us STSers can explain what we are doing while the screencapturing is happening. All your burning software questions solved.
