What is Jing?

The concept of Jing is the always-ready program that instantly captures and shares images and video... from your computer to anywhere. Try it, you'll like it. It's free.

Why do instructors use Jing?

  • They use Jing to create a screen shot or a picture of what is displayed on your computer screen:
    • Show a picture of a diagram or process and add it to Word, PowerPoint or Sakai
    • Provide a roadmap to a part of your course for your students
    • Show your students how to make screen shots, so they can show instead of tell you about a problem
  • They use Jing to create a screencast or a video recording of actions that occur on your computer screen:
    • Instructors introduce themselves to their students
    • Provide tours of the “online” parts of their class
    • Explain concepts and demonstrate how to perform math, science or computer lab assignments
