SNAGGY is a free web service which will post a screen shot, taken on a local computer to the web.
Teaching online can be a very frustrating experience. Problems which take just minutes to solve in a “Face to Face” environment can require hours to resolve online. Often, the impediment is some sort of barrier or firewall on the student’c computer which prevents the sending of information by email attachment. In the past, I’ve often resorted to making and posting a quick YouTube video demonstrating a concept or problem resolution. Now I have an even quicker solution – SNAGGY.
SNAGGY allows the user to upload a picture and post it to the web, quickly and easily. The picture can be an image from a users desktop or a screenshot. That’s the part really tweaked my interest.
With SNAGGY, the user can take a screenshot of something on their computer, use SNAGGY‘s built-in editor to crop, edit and annotate the image, then post it to the web – in about as much time as it took me here to describe it. SNAGGY provides a URL so others can view the image. I have an example below in which I’m showing a student what an OS X, Time Machine, Back-up drive looks like.
To create this image, I took a screenshot of my whole desktop, cropped the part I wanted to keep with SNAGGY‘s cropping tool then annotated the image with SNAGGY‘s editing tools. When finished, I can post the amended image to the web with just one click. Calling the process easy is like describing chocolate as “tasty”.
Bottom line? I really like SNAGGY. Not only is it easy to use (with lots of options and extras), it’s also the quickest way I’ve seen to publish a picture on the ‘Net.
The site is free to use and no account is required for access.
