My family and some of my friends were using a social network with poorly adjusted security options.
To show them how to improve their security I did a one-minute-video on Jing to show them the necessary clicks within the network.
Especially as my mom has some difficulties with computers and their settings, it was much easer for her to SEE what I was doing than to follow some complicated written explanation!
And for me it was kinda funny to send them this short Video, where they could hear my voice. 😉
Comments for My first Jing experience
|Sep 27, 2012||Jing an awesome tool to teach others
by: FrancisHey Kittycat,
Thanks for chipping in to the discussion. I also love Jing and I am using it every day. It’s so effective to teach others how to do something using visual and audible information.
I can’t say how often I have been asked from non-computer savvy relatives of mine to do something, I am sure you know that feeling.
I could even imagine using those videos as a creative gift for someone. You teach them something and they hear your voice. It’s very personal, you know.

by: KittycatThat’s so true, I especially love the personal aspect of it!! =)
|Sep 27, 2012||Great use of JING
by: Virtual AssistantIt’s a proven fact that video instructions work far better than written instructions. It saves a lot of time for both parties.
I think JING is the only software which not only provides quality screen recordings, but you can also use their screen capturing tool which comes with many advance features and you can easily share your screen captures to anyone by simply passing a URL.
|Sep 27, 2012||Pretty easy to understand
by: FrancisIt’s a very simple software, too! And you can explain even complicated stuff in a short amount of time, and everyone will get it 🙂

by: JomvieI had my first experience with Jing using the screenshot button. I was amazed because of its easy and no stress kind of function unlike any other apps on the internet. This is very helpful for my daily tasks and a must-have tool to all virtual assistants.
|Feb 20, 2015||A Must Have Tool for Employers: I Haven’t Seen Virtual Assistants Use It Yet
by: FrancisMore specifically, I haven’t seen virtual assistants use the video functions yet. My primary virtual assistant is using screenshots often. And it’s very useful to make a quick annotation to ask a question to me. So I definitively think it’s useful for both employers and virtual assistants.
As an employer, it even makes sense to invest in a paid solution to record videos longer than five minutes. But for starting, five minutes of recordings are great.
Virtual assistants often tend to shy about recording their English in a spoken language and send it to their employer. However, I believe that if a virtual assistant were to use the video function and ask questions that would really improve the communication back to the employer too. What do you think?

My first experience using Jing is great!
As a background, I have already used several screen capture tools for this like camtasia studio, monosnap, etc.
So far, Jing is the easiest to work with. Unlike the others, I have used it without reading any directions or tutorials.
As a summary. Jing is Simple but has all the functionality I needed.
Hello Nicole, thanks for sharing this as a comment! The part where you said that this tool could be used without instructions is very interesting for me from the point of view of an employer of VAs. For most online tools, a VA either needs an instruction file (or screen video) from the employer, and time (which therefore costs money) to understand the instructions. If Jing is so intuitive that it can be used right away, then it is a valuable puzzle piece for any employer wanting to work with VAs.
And for anyone too lazy to write out most emails, like me 😉
