Professor  Daniel Stein

Technology Advisor
Graduate Programs in
Education and Special Education

Below are video tutorials for creating a FREE multimedia screen captures. You will need a microphone for voice.
 If you are a student of Professor Stein's in either a "Live" or "Online" distance learning course format, you most probably have been asked to create your own 

Make it spectacular with an
E-portfolio Virtual Video Tour   and  Screen capture lessons on your e-portfolio web site

In this way visitors to your site can watch and listen to you explain the highlights of your web site.
They can all see that you can teach (and know) standards-based content  lesson.
They can all see that you know technology and can use it with your students.

Remember that your website will ultimately be viewed by administration, students and parents!
Many of my students have reported that it was the clincher in getting a position or a promotion.

Please DO NOT become overwhelmed. ( It is FUN and Easy)
Help will be provided by classmates in Blackboard (typically in either a BB Discussion FAQ or in BB Discussion Board Forum E-portfolio. Ask and answer questions there and show all what you have accomplished.
 In "Live" classes your professor and classmates will assist.

Where do I start when my heart stops racing!!!!!

1. Go to www.jingproject.com and watch the video tour "watch a video to see how"
2. You can download the Windows or Mac program FREE from

3. Install the program at your discretion and add a microphone and you are ready to go.

Now what should you do? First "Play" with it. It is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Watch the overview- Take Your First Capture
And the 3 steps are:

1. Select an Area to Capture
Capture a Video  or  Capture an Image (a screen image on which you can add arrows and text)
3. View your capture and Share your work

Important..... When using Jing try NOT to use the entire screen... If possible resize your program window to 800 by 600, then capture that smaller area. This way it will play back with all of your capture on the screen of the viewer.
