Thing 38 - continued
Yeah! After a bit of tinkering, I was able to get the screencast sample to work! I used Jing because I saw a brief demo of it at a conference and it looked fairly easy to use. Although it's easy to use, they leave a few steps out that you either already know how to do or you have to learn how to do. I believe it's the "intuition" part that I wasn't good at. I fell into the "had to learn how to do it" first group. Once I figured out those parts, putting it all together was alright. I can definitely see this as a useful tool in our library. It could so easily be used to help in library instruction for distance users and for helping distance users at the Reference Desk.
