Kaltura

Kaltura is an excellent tool IF you have a large library of content. It can be pretty pricey so if you are early in launching an online program you may be better off waiting a few years until you've amassed a large enough catalog to warrant the investment in such a tool.The tool is best purchased by a University or company-wide vs having a single department try to find the budget for it. The unlimited plan pays for itself in most cases if you go this route. Secondly, you must be willing to invest time and resources into on-going training for your faculty and staff, especially for those who wish to create their own media and use the quizzing features.

Loom

Here are a few ways I use Looms in my business:
  1. When assigning tasks to my team. Fire up a loom, talk through what I want, show examples. BOOM!(Oh, the time saved and mistakes avoided.)
  2. When reporting issues or asking for support from software companies.(Oh, the back and forth requests for more details, skipped.)
  3. When giving revision requests.(Video is THE fastest possible way to describe what’s working and what’s not about a design/page/whatever.)
  4. For creating quick step-by-step training videos as documentation for systems we build for our clients in my consulting business.

Pros

Kaltura

  • Very easy to use interface for uploading videos or capturing a screen recording. There are very few clicks required to get the media up and running. The video conversion process that happens on the back-end is fast and provides videos in device agnostic formats.
  • Integrates well with other systems, such as our Moodle LMS. This extends the capabilities of the LMS and also allows us to keep video/multimedia content organized in a central location (the KMC).
  • Kaltura can be connected to various processes within your organization. For example, we have a system in place that allows a video lecture in a classroom to be uploaded to Kaltura in a very easy manner.
  • User/role management is very important as some people on campus have more privileges to publish content than do others. We have Kaltura connected to our Single Sign-On solution for authentication and we can assign roles to specific people within the Kaltura software.

Loom

  • Allows you to share your screen across the internet immediately. No downloading large video files
  • You can specify if you want to include your headshot, voice, or both in your screen share.
  • You can set custom privacy settings to ensure that your information is safe and secure.
  • It's easy to embed files into a website, copy/paste the link into an email, or download and upload to a website. Very desktop and mobile friendly, no matter what browser you're using.
  • I also love that you can watch videos at 2x the speed. It makes my work flow extremely efficient.

Loom

  • I'd like Loom to have more shapes of video cam recording instead of just circle
  • I'd like Loom to be priced higher for premium features and give more minutes and free with basic features
  • I'd like loom to be more competitive in sales and marketing like vidyard

Since we have many terabytes of data currently stored with Kaltura and the system and it works great, it would be very difficult to move to another system.

Loom is a very good product which has many different use cases that help us to keep our products supported, allow our products to be sold, and allow us to talk with one another in the company. There are not many glaring issues with Loom that would hold me back from continuing to use this service but the main question will be how they stack up with the other video products on the market and their direct competition.

Loom is probably the easiest of all the tools I've ever used, and I've used dozens. The installation is one click and super simple. Then, using the tool is incredibly easy as well. They don't complicate anything and just make it super simple to create and share screen recording videos.

Loom is one of my favorite solutions and I've been a raving fan since they first launched. The value of quickly sharing videos in seconds is amazing. Our customers love it so much that they have even downloaded the Loom Chrome extension for their own use with their clients! It's so simple, and nothing else compares or competes.

The first line support agents seldom are able to diagnose or troubleshoot any problems that we have. These agents simply open support tickets in their system which are escalated to a foreign level 2 support agent which creates at least a day delay between reporting a problem and getting initial feedback. Any back-and-forth questions add at least another day delay.

I use Loom for simple tasks. Never used customer support really. It's so simple to use. I haven't had any real issue with Loom which would require customer support to help me out. So I just put 5 because I don't know if the customer support is good or bad since I never used, so I'm kind of neutral.

Alternatives Considered

Kaltura

We considered a couple of options 2 years ago. One of those options has since been sold and dismantled. Kaltura was really the best product in this space. Now, Canvas is releasing its own video solution very soon and it has some nice workflow features. It remains to be seen if that solution will challenge Kaltura.

Loom

I used to use Zoom to do screen capture video - even I don't have someone else in a video conference - just because it does a good job of creating screen captures. But that's not really what Zoom is designed to do. Now, when I need to do a fast, low-production-value, easy-to-distribute video, I use Loom.For more complex but still relatively quick videos, I use ScreenCast-O-Matic, because it gives me some post-production editing capabilities lacking in Loom. And for really top-notch editing, I use Vegas Pro 14. But neither of these are remotely as fast and easy as Loom.

Return on Investment

Kaltura

  • The ability to have such a robust solution for rich media content far outweighs the cost of service.
  • We have new projects which will push the limits and abilities of Kaltura in the future.

Loom

  • Loom has saved us a lot of time because we can record videos for our customers instead of walking them through something one-on-one.
  • Loom has helped us have better tools for our customers who often request video trainings.
  • Loom has helped us easily communicate with each other as a team about how new software works, how to replicate bugs we see, and other messages that work best with visuals.
