I’m loving this site http://www.screenjelly.com/ My colleague pointed it out to me this week and I’m absolutely hooked. It’s a simple idea but more importantly the execution is really simple. My colleague works in Germany so we are always talking about how to collaborate more effectively and basically make it easier to work on things. Screenjelly allows us to do just that, instead of going through sites whilst talking through Skype it’s so simple to record what is being done on the screen, add verbal instructions and package the file up and ping it across. Brilliant
I can see this working well for remote workers and for digital agencies to use as a leave behind instead/as well as a paper documents. The real benefit is going to be when briefing the creative team from a remote base. So much gets lost over the phone/translation that a simple file with voice instructions will change the way we work.
The only downfall is that each file is limited to 3 minutes of recording, but this easily overcome by recording more than file. You can sign into Screenjelly through twitter so sharing your screen recording is simple.
