When you're trying to teach people how to do something new on their computers having screencast videos or annotated screen capture images can be invaluable to you and the people you're trying to help. Here are some free tools that you can use to create screen capture videos and images. Vessenger , producers of a group messaging system, offers a free program for capturing and annotating images on your computer screen.

One way to avoid that is to create annotated screen captures of the tools you're introducing.
