Screen Grabbing & Recording

Quite often teachers need to include screenshots of WebPages or bits of software - usually when creating "How to" guides for students so that they know how to get a certain task done.

On this page you will find links to two types of tools - those that all you to capture a picture of what's showing on the computer screen (AKA a screenshot/screen grab) and those which let you record what's happening on the screen so that students can watch a video of your actions in real time (aka a screencast).

My personal favourite is JING as it allows you to quickly and easily do both:

The above video illustrates what Jing can do - it should be your first port of call for screenshots & screencasts.
