Jing and other useful products Libby Rowswell
Why Jing online? Multiple opportunities for the learner to watch/listen to an online demonstration Add a teachers voice to a demo Allows a teacher to respond to a student assignment with visual & audio Flexibility-those who were absent for the classroom lesson can watch/listen to the online demo to catch up. Also caters for late enrolments Provides opportunity for repetition and revision As part of blended delivery, demos and quizzes allow student to progress at own pace through an integrated unit Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne Australia 2
Jing Screen and voice capture program for still or video - free Jing version lets you record and narrate up to 5min video accessible via internet Use to demonstrate computer related tasks- word processing, excel, navigate a website Use Jing to make PowerPoint shows, talking books, solving maths problems etc Respond to students questions using Jing link in an email
Jing http://www.jingproject.com/ Help manual- if you need!---- http://blog.jingproject.com/2009/08/welcome-to-jing---a-guide-to-t.html Record your own- 5 min for free, youll need an email to download the software and a microphone headset- $20.
Jing Jing files are SWF -Sounds complex? The easier option is to upload your Jing movie to Screencast.com. You get a discreet weblink for each movie so you can paste into an email, web page, wiki, blog, webct Uploads are stored at www.screencast.com Dictation http://screencast.com/t/gZ7wyER8VAxw http://screencast.com/t/gZ7wyER8VAxw Maths problem http://www.screencast.com/t/rGykRchRx
Jing 1.Plug in the microphone headset and check your sound preferences 2.On the Sun Icon, click Capture and draw a rectangle around the screen area for capture – a section, or the whole window 3.Capture a still-screen shot, or a video 4.If you click video, there is a 3 second delay, then record and narrate whatever happens on the screen 5.Pause, restart and stop buttons.
Jing Save the file with a NAME-gives a SWF file that remains local Upload the SWF to your Screencast account -stores the file at Screencast and gives a web link that you paste as a the link into WebCT, Moodle, a WIKI or just email to students etc Jing

Jing your PowerPoint 2007 Create the slides in PP Reduce the PP screen size to about 35% Click on Slide Show Set up Slide Show Browsed by Individual ok Jing PP demo Start the PowerPoint show and record link to preposition pp
Jing- Dos & Donts Always check the microphone Start/ Setting/ Control Panel / Sound & Audio. Do the microphone test Dont have additional programs open- it gets distracting and slows the upload Rehearse-it might take a few times to get it right- Write a few notes-key words related to your main message or instruction Dont swirl the mouse around as you talk. I have to work hard not to talk with my hands as this is very distracting for the learners.
Jing- Dos & Donts Jing records the action on the screen, not the sound, or music in a powerpoint- Jing only gets sound through the mic Uploading to Screencast means that you have a remote library of your Jing movies You do need internet No reliable internet? Save the swf files on your intranet and run them locally as a demo using Jing History. ( on the Sun)
