Loom is an excellent web tool for creating quick video tutorials to share with your students or colleagues. The tool is very simple and easy to use, and most importantly, it is integrated with several services including Gmail, Google Docs, Dropbox, Trello, Asana and many more. This means that any video you record can be watched directly where it is shared. ‘Posting a Loom video link on the supported services will automatically pull in the Loom embed player. This allows you to watch a video inline so you don't have to leave the context of the conversation.’
To start recording a video, you need to install Loom extension. Once installed, click on its icon and log in. Next, adjust recording settings: you can specify whether you want to capture current tab, entire desktop or camera only. You can also choose whether to use audio or camera in your recording. Once done, you then process to recording. Watch the video below to learn more about how to use Loom. And yes, Loom is completely free of charge.
