3 Things Tuesday: Capture Screen Shots for Software Education

Screenshots are a valuable tool to teach students and personnel how to use the software they use on the job Рscheduling, ePCR, online training, etc.

Screenshots are also potentially valuable for us, as educators and trainers, to see what remote personnel are seeing on their screen.

In addition to “PrtScrn” (Print Screen) this tutorial shows 3 Methods to take a Screen Shot with MS Windows.

  1. Alt+PrtScrn to capture the active window only
  2. Snipping Tool (Accessories)
  3. PowerPoint 2010 or higher screen capture tool

I use all of the above for PowerPoint presentations and how-to blog posts.
