Comments from some of those who selected Loom as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2019

  • “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
  • “Great tool for screen recording with optional web cam integration. Doesn’t require install as it can be used as an extension on Chrome. I love it.” Learning Technologist, UK
  • “A very easy to use screencasting app. Can capture both screen and webcam at the same time so very good for giving students video feedback. Is an extension for Chrome so can bypass a lot of institutions ban on allowing users to install software. Requires minimal training for staff to be able to use.” Learning Technologist, UK
