Get Students Creating Their Own Video Reviews and Resource Library

This is a great tool to make screen-capture videos directly from within your Chrome browser.

Once you have registered and installed the browser plugin, you just go to the page or site and click on the Loom button.

You’ll need to give the plugin permission to use your microphone and webcam, then just click on ‘Start Recording’.

You can choose to record whole screen or just an application window.

Click the plugin button again and your video is instantly uploaded to your profile on the Loom site and the link is copied.

The recording will open in a new browser tab and you can then give it a title and watch it again. You’ll see the website you recorded a webcam image of yourself talking in the lower left corner and a number of fields to type in information and add comments.

You can share a link to the recording through social media, get an iframe embed code or just get a direct link. Once you share it users can watch and leave comments.

Loom is a great tool for teacher training and development and also great to get students speaking, doing website reviews and sharing them together. You can get the students to create their own resource library of useful tools and websites.

I hope you find Loom useful. You can find links to many more tools like this and activities for the digital classroom in my ebooks at: All my ebooks are available for iOS and as PDF.
