Jing Project: Visual conversation starts here.
Jing Project: Visual conversation starts here. Mac or Windows.
Jing is pretty freakin' amazing. Using this screen capture tool, we plan to create video tutorials for the library web page. Our first tutorials are already up. Dr. Nora Murphy, (CCHS Science) requested support for students doing searches for biology labs. She provided us with some labs, did some preliminary database searches herself, and passed along notes about her experience and useful keywords. This became the basis of our script for the first tutorials. Jing is easy to use, easy to embed, and will allow us to post tutorials on all sorts of library services. This means more support for students at home, when they are doing their homework and need it most.
