Capture Quick Videos from Your Browser with Loom

How often do you find yourself explaining how to do something on the computer? Typing it out is certainly not the clearest method.

Loom is a free browser extension for Chrome that lets you capture your screen in a quick tutorial video. You can record yourself doing some action and share that video with anyone you want.

This makes it so easy to manage a team and help others learn to perform any task you need.

All the videos you make can be stored for future reference, all of which have their own shareable links. The Loom team created a massive support guide for everything Loom-related with tips on getting started and managing your videos.

There are even specific guides to working with Gmail and recording your processes directly with your Chrome/Google account.

Each video you make can be shared directly or embedded into a webpage using Embedly. Perfect for tech users from any background trying to teach people how to do, well, anything!

Organize your captured videos into folders and set permissions for who can access them. Easy peasy.
