Screencasting and Screen Capture
Screencasting (screen capture) is an important tool! It is the #1 tool I use. It allows you to record anything you see on your screen in a video format and share it. This tool is revolutionizing the way we teach! I use it for creating tutorials, student feedback, and more. Students can use it for... (the sky's the limit)!

Richard Byrne has a nice PDF handout that includes ways to screencast on Chromebooks, iPads/iPhones, androids, and computers. He also has a chart that compares a few different screencast sites.
Jing is a well known screen capture tool. I use the paid versions, SnagIt and Camtasia. They are all products of TechSmith.
The "How-To Videos" are by Russell Stannard. The advanced videos "show you how to access the JING server where your videos are stored. You can embed the JING videos, leave attachments etc."
