Comments on Loom in 2021

“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

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