Here is a method to create quick learning modules and tutorials using Jing and Youtube.
Why it is Cool!
Jing lets you record a screencast, and Youtube provides a free and very accessible repository for your recordings.
Jing is a quick way to create a screencast. A screencast is just a video recording of your screen.
