I work in K-12. Our students do not have emails. So I was wondering if there was a way to use Jing without logging in to an account? Saving to computer will be fine (we have a place to store our pics/vids)

Hi, we to not have an option for you to use Jing without logging into an account.

Would Snagit be a possible solution for your students? You do not need to log into an account to use Snagit.

Thanks for your question!

Hello Paul,

You should be able to just download Jing Free and save the recorded video(s) to where you want them by using the save button. I use the Pro Version. A couple of questions for you.

1. Are you using the Free or Pro Version of Jing? The Free version will only record in .swf format and the Pro version does .swf and .mp4 format. Both still only allow 5 minutes of recording time.

2. Is Jing installed on all of the computers or network etc.?

I provided a link to the Jing Download Page and you might want to take a look at it for the comparisons of the Free and Pro Versions. Also, use the Jing Learning Center (Help) and see if that helps you any. The link is below:


But, in short to answer your question is Yes, you should be able to save the videos anywhere on your computers hard drive. Logging In is for a free or paid for screencast.com account if you plan on uploading videos if I am understanding you correctly. Let us know and thanks for posting.

Tiffany, the main drawback to SnagIt is it costs.
Fred, I do not see any way to use Jing (we are using free) without logging in...I am installing it on our networked computers.

You could create a Screencast.com account that all of the students would use for Jing. For example you could make paulsclassroom@gmail.com and have all of the students sign in with that.

The only possible problem with that would be the storage restrictions on free Screencast.com accounts. If you're saving to the computer though, that won't be a problem.

On a multi-user computer (like in schools), how do you log off your account?
