LinkedIn for Finding Expertise

As part of the Web 2.0 for Learning Professionals, I've created a couple of screen casts showing very quickly how I use LinkedIn to find expertise. This is my first time using Jing. Let me know what you think.

FYI - the Jing object does not appear in the RSS feed.

Whoops, I clicked too fast on publish - I will try to get additional screen casts posted soon.

By the way, I'm still looking for a free tool that will let me do this with someone else online at the same time. In other words, record my walk-through and conversation. Prefer it produces Flash Video Format.

What about recording Elluminate with application sharing on and then convert to the format you require?

Sue - record is not available in the free version.

Only one suggestion: I can't access LinkedIn with Firefox. When I e-mailed firefox, they suggested that I use IE as there are some problems with Firefox interactivity. I am finding the same problem with the updated facebook also.

So I use Firefox with everything but linkedIn and facebook.

You can't tell from the movie, but I use it with Firefox 2 all the time, including for this screen cast.

Actually, the problem started with Firefox 2. I was hoping it would be resolved with firefox 3, but I still can't log in using firefox.

I was told by the LinkedIn support staff that it is a common problem they are working on.

Since this problem started I have never used that feature again. I always use Firefox.
