Moodle never ceases to amaze with its intuitive features. One of those features is that if you attach a graphic file to a forum post it is displayed inline with the text of the posting (Cool ). I teach IT related courses, so my students sometimes find it convenient to post a screenshot of a window or some other portion of their screen. I instructed them that if they wanted to do this, the easiest way would be to do an Alt-Print Screen and then open Windows Paint (all of my students use Windows), and paste the image in there and then save it as a .jpg. They could then attach the .jpg to their forum post.
Another student suggested a tool called ScreenPrint32 (http://screenprint32.com/software/screenprint32.asp) that allows you to do all sorts of things in relation to screen captures. I and several of my students have it set up so that when I press Print Screen, it prompts me to select the area of the screen I want to capture. After doing that, it automatically saves the image as a .jpg with a unique date/time stamped name. This makes it very easy to create those screen captures and then post them in a forum.
ScreenPrint32 is freeware (no strings attached) but it only runs on Win 98/ME, NT/2000/XP. I just though some of you might be interested.
