Thing 18: Jing / screen capture / podcasts (making and following them)

I learned how to use screenr for creating tutorials last month as part of a professional development exercise. I created this very simple (VERY BASIC) how-to.

Finding the Weekly Lesson

This 23 Things exercise introduced me to JING. I cannot believe I did not know about this tool before! I copy and paste ALL THE TIME. This software takes those actions to the next level. If you just want to use it as a fancy copy and paste button, you can, but it also offers so much more! I’m so excited to know this exists. Short videos, captions, save-as or copy features galore with this tool. And it seems so easy to use. I’ve played around for a few minutes with it and I really think this will be a huge asset to the kind of stuff I do every day. Yay!

I have used Audacity for years. I used to be a huge podcast fan. I downloaded them, listened to a variety of them about different topics. I dabbled with creating them for a while. I have to say — I’m kind of over them. I’ve let all my subscriptions drop. I have turned to video creation and viewing to fill that need. I think a lot of people are transitioning away from them, as well. Maybe not — but I have a feeling…

Despite my lack of enthusiasm for podcasts¬†— this was a terrific Thing 18! I learned about a new tool that I think will be very beneficial. I encourage others to check out the ideas present on the 23 Things for Professional Development Program.
