Snagit for Google Chrome  - 
 
I am trying Snagit for the first time.  I have downloaded it from the Chrome Web Store.  Are there any tutorials how to use this version?  I see many tutorials but I do not figure out how to do any of the things shown.  All I have is the little Snagit icon next to my url bar.  Please help.

I'm getting static when I make screencast videos with Snagit on my Chromebook. I've used Snagit for months now and this is the first time I've had an issue. No static when I Google Hangout.

Thanks for the heads-up +Tom Mullaney! The issue was related to an update that Google pushed out for Chrome. As +Nate Gray mentioned, we pushed out an update that should hopefully fix the issue this morning, so everything should be working. Please let us know if you find this is not the case. Thanks for using Snagit for Google Chrome!

How I use SnagIt on my Chromebook to make video lesson recaps. Great for absent students and anytime learning!
I went to to EdCamp New Jersey at the end of November where I heard Chris Aviles suggest teachers should make video recaps. He argued that in a 1:1 classroom, video lesson recaps are a powerful too...

The intention of minimalism is to generate meaning from the minimum. This requires simplifying the design, using pure colors and simple flat elements in creating better Presentations, infographics and other forms of rich content. Here are some minimalist rules to follow: http://blog.visme.co/how-to-use-minimalist-design-to-create-professional-content/

Does the Snagit for Google Chrome App allow for editing? I thought it did, but can't see any editing tools. Is editing only in the PC/Mac versions?

Help please!!  I LOVE TechSmith Snag It and use it all the time for my flipped lessons, so I figured it's time to get the students to use it, but we are having issues.... I just used SnagIt last period with my students, but none of them were able to have it sync the capture.  In January I did the same thing with my students, and even early last week and there were NO issues...

 are using Chromebooks, they have the latest version of Drive, have the app and extension installed.  They get a message that they need to sign in and out of Chrome to get the app fully working, but we can't figure out how to sign out of Chrome on a Chromebook.  It seems that the app is not syncing with their Drive accounts.  We signed in and out of the Chromebook, and then the app/extension did not appear.  We had to install it again, and then had the same issue.

Interesting to note, that when I had a student log into my Chromebook (Same one as the student ones, same settings, etc.. ) she was able to get it to work no problem.

Any suggestions?
