Loom Logo


Loom is a freemium screencasting application for Windows and Mac machines (also available as a browser extension) that allows recording of your screen.

In reaction to the COVID-19 crisis, Loom made their “Pro” tier features free for verified student & teacher education accounts. Signing up using an MSU Gmail account will apply this tier to your account.

Download Loom

Loom can either be downloaded from their website as a standalone application, or it can be installed as a browser extension for Google Chrome. After installation, sign in with an MSU Gmail account to receive the free upgrade to Loom Pro.
