    Techsmith makes Camtasia in addition to Jing. I have a copy of Camtasia, which is excellent. It's not cheap, though, at $300. HOWEVER, there's someone selling a student edition on EBay for $99.

    Also, I do recommend purchasing a good quality microphone for your recordings. Believe me, it makes a HUGE difference in quality. You don't have to spend a lot to get a good one, though. Here's the one I have. It's not too expensive and the quality is excellent...

    It's possible someone just doing vignettes can get away with just using Jing, but I'd think anyone doing serious work would need to do editing, and Camtasia does that well. Camtasia may seem pricey to people who don't usually buy commercial software, but it's actually pretty powerful for the price, and I use it often. Adobe's equivalent would set you back twice as much.
