Screen Captures

· Jing and FS Capture are free tools that allow you to capture images or create video tutorials.
· Jing can be downloaded from http://www.techsmith.com/jing/ and has both free and pro versions. Jing can be used to create short video tutorials (a.k.a. screencasts) and screen captures (a.k.a. screen shots).
· FS Capture is an alternative to Jing for creating screen captures only. Current versions of FS Capture are available on a trial basis, but an older free version can be downloaded from http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?p=3&sc=184. The zip file can then be provided to learners via e-mail or placed in an Adobe Connect file share pod for learners to save to their computer.
