Easy Screencast Tools: Jing and Vodpod

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “Curriki Summer of Content 2010“, posted with vodpod
[tweetmeme]This afternoon I spent some time playing with the free versions of Jing (a screencast tool) and Vodpod (a great website for aggregating your favorite online videos and for converting them into formats that can be embedded in your own blog). As a way to test how both services work together, I put together the above video on the Curriki Summer of Content.
If you’re looking for a tool that allows you to easily create and share screencasts via URL, Twitter, Facebook, your classroom blog and more, make sure to visit Jing’s homepage to watch their quick video tutorial. Since I do a number of technology workshops, I plan to use Jing as a tool for creating video tutorials that I can email students in advance that way I can focus on more advanced and interesting topics during face-to-face sessions.
As of today, Jing videos are not directly exportable to WordPress.com blogs. So, if you use the tool with WordPress, make sure to use Vodpod to publish your screencasts easily to your blog!
Happy screencasting! And, don’t forget to apply to the Curriki Summer of Content.
