Working With Jing

  1. 1. Working with Jing What is Jing? Jing is Screencasting software that can record onscreen activities, either as a still image or a video. It also can record audio. The file Jing creates is a .swf (shockwave) file that can be stored locally (on your machine) or online. It has limited editing capabilities and limits recording to 5 minutes. Preparation Download Jing from http://www.jingproject.com Create a user account with Screencast.com ( http://www.screencast.com) Example: Capturing an image 1. Start Jing 2. Go to http://www.pubmed.gov 3. Click on the “Limits” tab Part I: Let’s Make an Image Capture Decide on your favorite social software site, tool, or feature you use often. Ex: Flickr, Facebook, Delicious, Twitter, PubMed, NN/LM GMR 1. Open the website, tool, etc. of your choosing. 2. Move the mouse over the golden ball at the top of the screen. 3. Select the left-most option 4. Notice your mouse is now a set of crosshairs 5. Left click and drag 6. Release the left click when you have selected the area you like 7. Highlighted region is the “capture” area (if you don’t capture the area you like – just start over!) 8. Record the main body of the page you chose.
  2. 2. 2 9. Click on the image button at the bottom of the screen. Notice the toolbar. Add Arrow Add Text Add Arrow Add Highlight Change Color Undo/Redo Play with these features Add an arrow to point to something on your capture Change the color to blue Add a textbox on your capture and type in some helpful information Resize if needed 10. Notice the other toolbar at the bottom of the capture. 11. Click on the Send to Screencast.com button (you will have to log in with the account you created). 12. Jing will tell you that it has copied a URL to your image capture on the clipboard. 13. Open your browser and paste the URL in the address bar. Tips: What if you need to find an older image you worked with? o Go to the Golden Ball and select History o Select the image you created o Click on the Share icon to recopy the URL What if you want to edit the image?

  3. 3. 3 o Double-click the image and add new elements to it (you cannot remove old ones however) o Click on Send to Screencast to generate a new file. Notice there are other options – you can FTP, save as a file, and send to Flickr. Part II: Let’s Make a Video Capture 1. Open the website, tool, etc. of your choosing. 2. Write a single learning objective for a demonstration video for the tool you would like to demo. o Ex: how to send a tweet in twitter, how to set your privacy settings in Facebook, creating sets of photos in Flickr, using RSS in PubMed 3. Click on the Golden Ball and select Capture. 4. Drag the crosshairs to select the main body of the screen – include the entire width of the page. 5. Select the Video option. 6. Wait for the countdown. 7. Perform an action on the page (i.e. for PubMed, click on Limits tab, click on Add Journal button, add three journals, do a search, etc.) 8. Click on the Stop button when you are done creating your capture. 9. Send to Screencast.com by selecting the Send to Screencast button. o View your video capture – open your browser o Paste the URL in the address bar o Click the Play button to watch your video capture o You can also access your images directly from Screencast.com Notes: You can use a microphone; Jing has a 5 minute time-limit, remember to not speak or move too fast, storyboard or script your video capture, do a practice run!
