In this video clip filmed live over the weekend at the IATEFL conference in Harrogate, Russell Stannard shows how to use the free screen recording tool Jing to provide students with powerful feedback they can access in their own time and replay as many times as they see fit. He explains that by using the tool he can capture anything from his computer screen, upload the results to the web and notify his students via email of what he has produced for them.
Russell also suggests other tools such as Screentoaster and Screenr for achieving the same sort of outcome. For editing recordings and using more powerful features however, he recommends Camtasia, a commercial tool developed by Techsmith, the same people who make Jing.
Prior to his talk Web 2.0 tools that make a difference, Russell also took part in a 5 minute interview where he discusses how he got into screencasting, the purpose of his wonderful site Teacher Training Videos and his favorite tool at the moment iTunes for downloading podcasts and iPhone apps to create distance learning opportunities for students outside of the classroom.
Nice one Russell!
