Kwout is a free, Web based screen capturing and quoting tool. It allows you to get a screen shot on any Web page and you can quote a part of a web page as an image with an image map. This means that any links on the image map is clickable and takes you to the Web location. I tested out Kwout several times and found it is very easy to use. It has three simple steps: 1) Grab a screenshot, 2) Cut out an area by dragging a mouse on the screenshot, and 3) Post the image with the image map to your Web page or blog. So far, I like this  screen capturing and quoting tool and think Kwout is a convenient, productive tool for creating Web-based instructional materials for students.
