Key Steps to Record Successfully with Loom
Loom Virtual Classroom
Features to help teachers and students communicate easily through video
Record your lesson
Pull up your class content onto your preferred presentation page (Google Slides or Powerpoint). Then launch the Loom recorder.
Annotate your screen (Desktop App only)
Loom's drawing tool is a great way to provide feedback and make quick markings on your screen as you narrate. Markings will disappear after a few seconds to keep your screen clutter-free.
Flip your camera
Make sure handwritten or printed text displays the right way around in your webcam recordings.
Open the recording menu, click on the three little dots in the upper corner, click on Preferences, toggle on or off the Flip Camera option for your desired effect.
Open the recording menu, click on Show Advanced Options, check or uncheck the Flip Camera option for your desired effect.

See what teachers and students are saying about Loom
Teacher friends!! If you are not using @loom to create videos, you should start! Super easy and a good way for kiddos to see you and your screen if need be! #risdprek #flaleads #learningathome
Our 3rd-grade team is using @loom to continue read-aloud to our classes, help parents navigate our online platforms, and to teach mini-lessons. It has been a lifesaver!
Jim Harshaw Jr
Teachers: This is one of the COOLEST and most USEFUL tools for teaching remotely. Ridiculously easy and immensely practical for this exact situation. Oh, and it's now FREE for you! Thanks @loom!
Frequently Asked Questions
Who can view my video?
Only people who you share your video link with can see your video. Your videos are not searchable in online search engines, unless you enable that option.
If you'd like to add an extra layer of security you can password protect your videos: here's how to do that. If you'd like to read more about how deeply the creators of Loom value your security and privacy please take a look at the following help article.
How do I see who viewed my video?
To identify who watched your video, they will need to have a Loom account and be logged in while watching. Otherwise, it'll show up as an Anonymous view. Learn more here.
I'm experiencing audio/camera issues. What do I do?
Follow the steps in this article here.
How can I disable comments or emojis if being used inappropriately?
To prevent students from emoji reacting and leaving comments on your videos, you can turn this off from your video settings. This article will show you how.
Help, I can't find my videos!
This can happen when you're logged into different accounts between the desktop app and browser version of Loom. To fix this, log out of both then back into your preferred account.
How do I put my video on my education platform?
Although we don't integrate natively with other education programs you might use such as Google Classroom or Seesaw, you can download your Loom video, then upload it into these sites. Here's how.
Can I have more than one Creator on the Education plan?
Loom for Education is limited to a single Creator within a Workspace. Please note that when you first sign up for an account with Loom while waiting to be verified, you will be placed on a Loom Business 14-Day Free Trial. During the trial, you will be able to add additional Creators, but as soon as you are verified and upgraded into the Loom for Education plan, the other Creators will be downgraded to Viewers.
