We are the Program for Online Teaching, a group of volunteer faculty helping other faculty teach better online.

Our focus is on pedagogy as the guiding force for using technologies for teaching.

Many of us are from MiraCosta College in Oceanside, California. MiraCostans may access the Teaching/Technology Innovations Center for technical help, resources, news and more.

Jing – Show Your Online Students What You Are Talking About from Program for Online Teaching on Vimeo.

With Robert Kelley and Jim Sullivan, for POT workshop on 16 August 2011.
Jing makes integrating video into your online class a breeze – whether it is for sharing mini-lecturettes, replies to students, demos, or providing students with feedback on their assignments/quizzes. We’ll focus on learning the basics of Jing, then providing your students with a tour or introduction to your class, website, or learning unit, and uploading your videos.

Jing Tutorial
Jing Tutorial avatar

Provided is an example of using Jing by TechSmith to create a 5 minute (or shorter) video tutorial… Jing makes it incrediably easy to create a screen recording, upload it, and to share with others. The recording can with just one click either be uploaded to ScreenCast.com (you get 2 GB free) or to your YouTube account. The entire video creation and sharing process can be accomplished in 5 – 10 minutes total. I’ve used Jing to answer student questions, create short lecturettes, discuss documents with colleagues, and make fun videos to share with family.
