Why We Love Jing (Part 2)

Those of you who know LINGOs will not be surprised when you hear us exclaim that “We Love Jing” 

That said, the release of Jing Pro earlier this week has us rekindling our love affair with the tool. Yes, the JING screen capture software continues to be our choice for making quick screen recording videos that help us train users of new applications, document the user experience when troubleshooting, and generally providing narrated communications using PowerPoint or other screen applications.

So, what does JING Pro offer that is new and different?   For a fee of $14.95 a year, JING Pro lets you:

  • Record full-motion video from your screen
  • Share faster with smaller video files
  • Upload straight to YouTube (or upload manually elsewhere)
  • Strip Jing logos & links from your videos

The ability to record full-motion video is especially intriguing.  I have often envisioned a learning series that uses Skype video to conduct interviews with leaders in the field of international development, relief and conservation around the world.  These videos could be recorded and posted to the web, providing easy access to viewers regardless of their location.  With JING Pro, it now becomes a one-click operation to record that Skype video chat AND (if you choose.)

Why We Love Jing

At LINGOs, we love JING!  When we are working on a virtual team and need to work through a complicated troubleshooting issue… … make a JING!  Need to train a group of LMS Administrators on how to complete a task on the Learning Management System… … make a JING!  About to launch a major new initiative and need to communicate with hundreds of people… … make a JING!

Why do we love JING?  First, it’s free!  Second, it is intuitive and easy to use.  Third, you can forget about struggling with the complicated effort involved with managing source files, publishing in multiple formats, and uploading to FTP sites.  Finally, did I mention it is free?

As the JING Project turns one year old, the development team has made the product even more easy to love.  JING subscribers now receive  a complimentary server account with 2 GB of storage and 2 GB of transfer bandwidth per month. 10 times the size available previously.  Furthermore, you can increase your server space at a reasonable additional price.
