KillerApp Alert! Jing Screencasting Software
Ok about a half hour of playing with Jing and I’m gobsmacked. Makes previous screencasting software (Captivate and Camtasia) look monolithic and clunky!
I recorded and published (pushed) a video within one clean workflow. The upload happened in the background without any lag to my continued browsing.
So far this looks like a KillerApp for screencasting! Very cool and ticks a bunch of help desk support pedagogy boxes.
Some things I still need to look into:
- packaging standard? What kind of XML backbone is there? <- goes towards converting to a learning object package?
- ability to upload to other server?
- what is their business model? how much is this thing going to cost?
