Loom is a screen recording application that allows you to screen record videos and presentations from your device so that you can share them online.

Here we can create multiple tutorials to be shared with Delegate Connect Staff so that processes and procedures can be easily accessible and shared.



1. Once you have downloaded the free version of the Loom application onto your preferred device, depending on how you download it, you can either open it as a chrome extension on your browser or at the top bar of your desktop screen.


2. The drop-down window will allow you to choose and cater your recording to the most appropriate version of the video you are recording.




3. The first option that you can choose is what you are recording on your device:

  • Screen and Camera: allows you to record the desktop and the content being displayed, as well as a camera feed that will be displayed on the bottom left of your screen.
  • Screen only: records only the desktop and the content being displayed.
  • Cam only: records only your camera feed on your device.



4. The second option that you can choose is the area of your desktop that will be recorded:

  • Full screen: will allow you to capture and record everything that is being displayed on your desktop.
  • Window: will allow you to capture and record anything on a preferred application or window that is currently opened.
  • Custom size: will allow you to select your own area of the desktop that you would like recorded and would be useful if you do not want to record the entire screen.



5. The Recording Settings allow you to choose your camera and microphone that will be used to record on your device. If you use an external microphone or camera to record your video, you will be able to select it from the drop down menu here.


6. Below the Recording Settings you can see the strength of your internet connection and you can choose the quality of your video output as well. Ensure that you record in an area that has strong internet connection so that the viewers can see the visuals and hear your audio clearly.




7. Pressing Create a Recording Canvas will allow you to create a title card for your video. Through this window you can choose and cater various design elements to enhance your video.

  • Background Colour/Image: will allow you to choose a solid colour for the background of the title card. There are a selection of different colours present or you can select a custom colour. There are also a selection of different images/backgrounds that Loom has created for you to use.
  • Text Layout: will allow you to choose the layout of the text on screen. Once you have written the title of your video you may also change font, size etc.
  • Templates: will allow you to choose a template created by Loom for your video.



8. Once you have customised and set up your Loom settings, you are now ready to start your recording. To begin, you select the Start Recording button and a countdown will appear on screen starting from 3. When the countdown finishes recording has now begun.



9. When you navigate your mouse to the left hand side of your screen, you will see a collection of different buttons that all have their specific function whilst the recording is underway.

  • There will be a timer that displays how long your recording is.
  • The Stop Recording button that will stop the recording when you select it
  • The Restart button which will restart your recording if you choose to do so.
  • The Pause button which will momentarily pause the recording until you resume it by pressing the Play button.
  • The Cancel button which will stop the recording and subsequently delete the recording.
  • The Draw function which will allow you to annotate and draw on the screen whilst you are recording.



10. Once you have finished your recording you press the Stop Recording button and Loom will automatically redirect you to their website where you can view your recording as well as change the video preferences, trim the video, change the thumbnail and/or change the title of the video.



11. Once you have finished editing your video, you now need to move the item to your Team Library into the appropriate folder. To do this you need to navigate your mouse to the 3 dots found on the top right of your desktop, after selecting it you will need to choose the Move button. Loom will inform you of the current library that the video is in, and therefore here, you will select Team Library from the drop down menu. Select the appropriate folder depending on the team that you are in and select Move. You now have your completed video in the correct folder for viewing.








Having followed this guide you can now record video tutorials using the Loom application and share them with the appropriate team for ongoing learning.

To search for required videos, log into your Loom account and search within the Knowledge Base Videos folder.

If the video you are searching for has been created then it will be found within this folder.
