    Hi Alex, thanks for the comment on my blog about screencasting. I have had a look at Jing. I even reckon that it was me who inspired Techsmith to create Jing. But asside from your link returning, I’m a bit skeptical of it because it doesn’t give you the file to upload to your own publishing platform.. last I checked, you get an SWF (?) I want an MP4 or FLV at the least so I can reuse it in different contexts and not only have it on Techsmith’s servers.

    Thanks for your valuable comments Leigh, yes you do get a swf file. You raise a really interesting point about having the file in a different format to use in otehr spaces.

    At this stage, I think it is a great little app for teachers who are beginners at all this Web2.0 stuff. I hope they use it enough that soon, they ask themselves about the issues you have raised.

    At the moment I am hoping to point people I work with to a quick and dirty solution to Adobe Captivate.

    I think we need to be able to store this kind of thing on our own servers within our Institute though, as you have said. DET will probably block Jing before too long anyway! LOL

    Thanks again,
    Alex
