Comments on Loom in 2022

“The past couple of years, Loom has become a part of my daily computing life. It is a simple screen casting tool. Record what’s on your screen (with or without your face included via your web cam) and as soon as you press stop, there’s a link that automatically gets copied to your computer’s clipboard which is now ready to paste anywhere you want. I use Loomfor simple explanations, to have asynchronous conversations with colleagues and students, to record how-to videos, and to invite students to share what they’re learning. If you verify your Loom account as an educator, you get the pro features for free.” Bonni Stachowiak, producer and host of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast, USA

“I purchased Prezi once we lost Zoom. It’s helpful in that I can share URLs to my videos easily, however I won’t likely continue once I learn Loom.” Karen Caldwell, University educator and consultant, Canada

Previous comments on Loom

“I use Loom in my teaching, work, and personal lives multiple times a day. When I have a quick thing I want to “show” someone, I can record my screen quickly and copy a link to the resulting video with a single click. I can also include my web cam and do a video with something on my screen, or just the camera, alone.” Bonni Stachowiak, HE educator, USA, 2021

“Recording videos in an easy way” Gijs Groeneveld, Netherlands, 2021

“Loom is the easiest of all screencasting tools for me. It creates simple, quality videos to demonstrate a skill for a student or a group of students in a flash. The closest thing to “being live” without actually being live with students!” Librarian, 2020

“The best video recording option out there! Allows to you to record without limits and still allows you to edit/trim the video!” Teacher, 2020

“Free Screen recording for specifcic program training, you can record with a person on the screen as well as share the screen and show the student what steps to take on the screen. It has the ability to share link with specific people or upload into Youtube” Vanessa McCarthy, Managing Direcror, Australia, 2020

“Love this to create quick tutorials or capture a tech issue.” Penny Pearson, Coordinator, USA, 2020

“Superb screen-capture video tool. Super easy and fast, enabling rapid communication by quickly recording yourself and the screen then sharing instantly. And it’s free!” Learning Content Developer, Spain, 2019
