Pros: Ilos is great video capturing software! I work in higher education and use it to conduct online classes. I also use it to add online supplements to my in person classes. The software is very intuitive to use. It doesn't take much training to start using it immediately. However, if you get stuck, they have short and simple videos to help. On top of that, their customer service is fantastic. They are quick to respond.

You can record multiple videos back to back and easily embed them into a learning management system. You can get closed captions quickly. In addition, the video quality is good. You can also have your students record their own videos for grades.

Compared to other software, I have found ilos to be fantastic.

Cons: Right now I am having a hard time thinking of any. Sometimes the load times can be a little long but that is few and far between. It might not even be the softwares fault. Overall, I have had really positive experiences.

Overall: Compared to other software, ilos is a time saver. I can record and upload videos extremely quickly with ease. Some of my colleagues ask for help on various things and I often send them a quick video as it is much easier and simpler than typing an e-mail. Ilos is liked by my students and I like that I can track if they viewed the assigned videos. Additionally, the customer support is fantastic. I once submitted some feedback through a survey. I didn't ask for follow up but the ilos team took the time to help me with a concern I had. They go above and beyond.

ilos is the video platform you have been waiting for.

Pros: ilos is so simple. In a few minutes You will be uploading video, recording original content, and sharing it with whomever You wish. They have taken the time to make simple to follow, and thorough video tutorials to explain every aspect of their product. If You can't find what You are looking for, their customer service is astonishingly responsive and courteous. You will get services and features that You will pay quite a bit more for on other platforms. It's just an excellent product that has stepped up our video game.

Cons: I'd like to be able to assign a video to a non-entity user like a Department or Division instead of a person to help with continuity in the case of turnover or personnel changes. They have recently introduced institutional size limits, which I was not thrilled about, but I do understand the need for it. Still, unlimited uploads is certainly more appealing.

Overall: I work at a College, and we need simple video that just works for all our users from the top down. ilos has provided us that and integrated with our LMS to make the adjustment from another service as easy as possible. They have closely worked with us in every step to help our users be comfortable and learn ilos and be up and going quickly and without issues. I suggest ilos to everyone i can. I love it.

Pros: I like that we can screen record, host videos, caption, add questions/quizzes, edit video, and other features all within one website/product.

Cons: There are currently lots of glitches with the machine captioning. Ilos set the bar really high for themselves the first year we used them, and adding this feature was not an improvement. If we had not had such a great experience the first year, we might not be patient enough to give them time to work this out. I'm afraid new customers may not be so patient. And it depends on how quickly they get this problem fixed whether we will continue a third year.

Overall: Our faculty love ilos (when the captioning works) for all of the reasons stated in the first question above. We are using ilos for flipping the classroom.

Pros: I really like the ilos software. I teach American school law and i use it each week to record class. The recording allows my students to review my lectures and the entire class. It is also a wonderful back up for student who have had to miss for illness or conflict.

Further, I use it for online teaching and it is a snap to turn on and record. EASY!

Cons: Sometimes I'm disappointed in the quality of the sound of the video. I realize that some of that may not be related to the software but, to my computer.

Pros: My institution purchased iLos about two years ago. In the past, we have used Wimba and Panopto. iLos is by far superior to both of those options. From downloading the recorder to organizing and recording videos, iLos is extremely user friendly. I recommend other instructors at my institution to get on board as well! Customer service is exceptional. The live chat option is amazing. And once the rep had to take over my computer to solve a problem, and everything was worked out quickly.

Cons: My least favorite aspect is the editor. Editing was easier in Panopto because you had the option of slowing down the recording in order to get more precise cuts in the video. With iLos, it is more of a listening, rewinding, guessing, and playback in order to cut portions of a video. A bit more time consuming than Panopto.

Pros: The program is very fast for a online program. It is very easy to do basic functions within the program itself - recording, saving, and uploading.

I really like the new addition of questions in the middle of the videos and the ability to add comments. The easy interface to Moodle is also excellent. I have also created videos on my phone to show students how to install software on the phone.

Cons: I do like to use special effects, like zooms and speeding up the recording. I also like to splice several videos together - I have found that the basics are handled well with Ilos, but if I want to add effects, I need to pull up another program.

I am not sure about this - it seems that there is a small downloaded extension to my browser (I did not need administrative rights which is good) so I don't know if it would work on a Chromebook.

Overall: I have created a number of How To videos using Ilos (including instructions for programs on a phone.) Screencasts are very easy to complete.

Pros: I came to ilos after working with youtube video and skype for business video and several other mediums, integrating these with Blackboard. With the launch of Canvas at my university, I decided there had to be an easier more efficient way to both affect the integration seamlessly into the chosen CMS, as well as to offload the material for review and external purposes, neither of which easy or intuitive with those other mediums. I find ilos well suited for the purpose and very effective as well as much faster than some of the other mediums. In fact, I wish ilos was chosen to replace Canvas own conferencing mechanisms which leave a lot to be desired.

Cons: The biggest challenge is making sure the add on program is downloaded and installed properly in your particular Windows installation which could be a challenge of the new windows 10 software rather than ilos itself. There is also the possibility of conflicts with a myriad of other desktop programs that handle a/v or seek to exclusively.

Pros: I love the easy of use of the recorder. It's simple, light weight and doesn't require admin rights to my PC to install.

Cons: I would love to be able to use the editing features directly within the recorder. It takes a long time after recording for the video to become available for trimming, blurring and adding questions.

Overall: I've used ilos for many things in my day-to-day. I use it for product demos, bug recreation recording and instructional videos. I am in the process of integrating Ilos into my LMS system to create microlearing training videos.

Pros: ease of use; clean design; ease of closed captioning; interactive quizzing feature

Cons: editing; web cam - would like to turn web cam on and off during recording

Overall: In order to add engagement, collaboration, and interactivity to our F2F, blended, and online courses, we needed a cleanly designed, easy to use video platform solution. ilos has been instrumental in adding collaboration and increasing accessibility on our campus. I would highly recommend any institution to add ilos to their technology tool kit.

Pros: The Ilos interface is simple, well designed, and easy to learn. It's most basic features are intuitive, with the advanced features being easy enough to master.

Cons: I would like the ability to strip audio from video, and keep an audio bank. It's a specific request, but I use Ilos for customer support and inside sales, and that feature would be helpful.

Overall: Ilos has helped us with script and process fidelity. We are easily able to increase the speed of mastery for all employees. This product has greatly improved our new-hire onboarding experience.

Pros: I loved being able to make videos interactive by adding questions and being able to link that data to my grade book in Blackboard. I also like their captioning services--fast, accurate, and all done by real people.

Cons: The new interactive features are in the beta stage. I have input many questions and there are weird formatting errors once the questions are finalized. Also, I hate that you can't edit question sets. You pretty much have to start over if you make any errors or want to change questions in the future.

Overall: I love what they do and what they are trying to do. I think once they get the bugs worked out in the new features which are all in beta phase, this will be a powerful video program that instructors will love.

Comments: I have loved using Ilos so far, and it's honestly not because I'm new to video and struggle with more complicated applications. I have used multiple video capture methods over the years and I still love Ilos. The main reason I'm such a fan is how easy it is to create videos, host them online, and manage the library all in the same place. I make training videos, so I'm not looking to win Oscars. My biggest challenges are projected turn-around time, making changes to projects when needed, and online delivery. Ilos has made all of these SO easy! In my industry, things change constantly and the ability to make a change to a video, replace it in Ilos, and have it automatically update everywhere I have used that link online is so helpful. The editing tools are limited, but that's the idea. It's supposed to be easy, so don't expect to be able to do a ton with the editing tools.

Thank You ILOS

Pros: The videos were easy to produce and easy to edit

Cons: There were few options to edit the video, although the video editing process was very efficient. I would of liked there to be different types of texts.

Overall: I used ILOS for a school project, I got an 85 on the project and was very content with the grading and the use of ILOS In getting that grade.
