HOW TO SHARE DESKTOP SCREEN WITH YOUR STUDENT

If you are an online tutor you will know of the value of being able to share a picture ,diagram,formula,or video with your online student/students.A picture is worth a thousand words and your explanation of a concept can be enhanced by a visual and students will understand better and retain in memory longer.One such FREE website is Jing where you can share your screen whole or in part so that your student or anyone you choose to share with, can hear you as you explain with the image on your screen.Works very well for a collaborative class project,I am told! You can add arrows, text and highlights to images. If you have a microphone, you can narrate your video! Videos are limited to 5 minutes in length.Short tutorials can be created quickly for saving and sharing.Paste the link code in IM chat,email,forum post,Twitter,anywhere,for sharing.
