Comments from some of those who selected Loom as one of their top tools

“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
