  • YOU WILL NEED TO USE JING – FREE TOOL, instead of SnagIt (if you read this module already and saw SnagIt). Jing is a TechSmith product, just like SnagIt is a TechSmith product, except SnagIt licenses cost. For this project, you are going to create a SCREENCAST video about your website – about 4 – 5 minutes in length. It cannot go over 5 minutes using free Jing software. The screencast video could be an overall presentation of your site, explaining to viewers how to navigate the different pages. OR, the screencast video could be a “how to” video for completing a specific piece of your site. You decide.

    • DO NOT UPLOAD A VIDEO FILE.  If you use another software than Jing, upload to YouTube.
  • Overview: You may experience (or already have experienced) a time when a friend, family member, coworker, etc asks you how to do something on the computer. Often times there is an easy solution. However, other times may require that you give the person step-by-step directions on how to do the task. Instead of writing them out, a visual representation might be more appropriate and is often more effective.
