How to capture and share video of your screen with Jing

How to capture and share video of your screen with Jing | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

Jing tutorial: Capture a video: Jing can capture and share videos (up to five minutes long) from your computer screen. Narrating a quick video is a great way to show someone exactly what you mean. 

Becky Roehrs's insight:
