“If only I could demonstrate this concept to my e-learning students!” An example of a screen captureAn example of a screen capture
“If only I could share this terrific graph with my students!”
“If only I could show the step-by-step  use of the course web page!"

If these are your thoughts, you may find that a free screen capture tool will save the day!  For example, you can easily capture a graphic to insert in a document or powerpoint. The following pie chart was copied and pasted here using a screen capture.

Schroeder, S. A. (2007). We Can Do Better — Improving the Health of the American People.
N Engl J Med, 357, 1221-1228.

A screen capture tool performs two functions. It will make a single image of your screen, and it will record your screen as you open links and move your cursor (this is a ‘screencast’). You may  record your voice during the screen cast.  For additional ideas and examples on using a screen capture or screen cast tool such as Jing in education see Jing: Screen capturing, screencasting.

Possible uses in health science education include the following.

Students may:

  • Record a narrated historical health or personal journey using Google Maps or Earth.
  • Use as a digital story telling tool.
  • Create health education presentations and share them on public web sites.
  • Create an academic preseantation.
  • Use as a reflection tool to explore the steps in a research activity.
  • Use to communicate their thinking or reasoning about a challenging case or research question.

Educators may:

  • Develop tutorials.
  • Demonstrate the course web page parts and links.
  • Create presentations with powerpoint or other software.
  • “Think aloud” to deliver a personal or group message to students.
  • Add voice and photos to personalize the distance learning experience.

The Jing Learning Center contains a wealth of tutorials and tips.

Please share your use of screen capture and screen casting in education, and recommend your favorite screencapture or screen cast software in the comment section of this blog.
