SpeakingImage sort of reminds me of Jing. This tool can be used to annotate images and even highlight or “illuminate” certain parts of a page. This can be great for teaching and learning to create how-to-use programs or set up documents, etc. I used to teach college English and I always had to explain how to use EBSCO host, so students could search for journal articles. Creating something like this and using the illuminator tool to highlight certain areas of the page would be incredibly beneficial for students. This is especially true fo incoming freshman who may not be familiar with resources like EBSCO. SpeakingImage could also be used to create tutorials for filling out financial aid forms, registering for classes, or accessing online grades or Blackboard. While I really appreciate Jing, this tools seems like it may be a better choice for creating tutorials. It is one thing to go over something in class, but we can’t always expect that it will be enough for students to independently follow the process. Having tutorials like this will provide a valuable resource for independent learning.
