Publishing your Mathcasts with Jing

1. Setting up sound:

  • Plug in the Logitech USB microphone.
  • Double check your sound settings by going to System Preferences---> Sound--->Input-----> Logitech USB Mic.


2.
Open the Smart Notebook software.
  • You can also use Microsoft Word or any other program that has blank white space. Create a blank Flipchart or document. You are just about ready.


3.
Recording.
  • When you are ready to record, click the JING sun window in the top right corner. (don’t see the Jing Sun in the corner? Open it in your applications folder). You’ll get an option to drag a box down to select your area. You’ll find that you can move this window all around if you need to.
  • When you are ready. Hit record. You get three seconds to get prepared. You have a maximum of 5 minutes.

Mathcasting Tips: While recording, make sure the tell folks, what the concept is that you are about to go over. When you are done, repeat that as well. This was....(solving ratios).
  • Math concepts/ ideas. I think you can use mathcasts to do two things. 1. Explain a concept. 2. Work through a problem. It doesn’t have to be rocket science, but you can guide and shape a student’s online engagement.


5.
Finishing:
  • When you are done recording. Hit stop.
  • Click the Youtube button. It is set to publish to the mathademics site. Make sure to title it appropriately.
  • The password for Mathademics is: mathisfun
