Great FREE Software Downloads

The eLearning Coach

You can import photos from a digital camera, edit them, and make and share Picasa Web Albums online. Jing works on both Mac and PC, to capture single pictures or to record video of screen activity. FLV Player. If your a multimedia maven, then you need to play FLV files. You can download the free FLV player at CNET. I don’t mean to sound dated, but sometimes I use the type of software that installs on my hard drive rather than an online application.

Imagine building an e-learning course with dozens of photos this size–the course size would cause all sorts of problems with the students.
