Pros
Vidgrid makes it super easy for me to record online lectures and to do distance education easily and quickly. They have great features and are constantly making the product better.
Ilos is easy to use (really, really easy), has a really good set of features that are easy to use, and it's great with Lessonly.
There are multiple functions, fantastic support, and it is fairly intuitive.
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.
There are few things I don't like about VidGrid. I have had difficulty when I set permission settings so only my students can see the videos that some students struggle to get the video to play.

Video capture and creation for normal people

Reviewed 4 years ago

VidGrid is used for faculty to create instructional content and have it captioned for sharing within our LMS. Staff generally use it for intranet instructional screen recordings, and students use it to either create a video or simply submit into the LMS.

Pros

VidGrid has done a great job targeting the internet savvy video virgin. The recorder and website do a great job walking you from feeling intimidated to finishing your first video.

Cons

Being a larger, slower moving company with many change-averse users, some updates (including the rebranding) caught us more by surprise than we like. It would be nice to allow opting in for updates rather than finding out after a feature/bug is live that users should expect a change.

Great video recording software in an education setting

Reviewed 2 years ago

Vidgrid makes it super easy for me to record online lectures and to do distance education easily and quickly. They have great features and are constantly making the product better.

Pros

Vidgrid has been fantastic for creating online lectures and tutorials. I teach online and use it to record my lectures. It has great privacy settings so that only my students can see the videos. I can also track and see if the students watched the video and how much of it they watched. I can even add quiz questions into the videos to ensure mastery over the content presented. There are multiple functions, fantastic support, and it is fairly intuitive.

Cons

There are few things I don't like about VidGrid. I have had difficulty when I set permission settings so only my students can see the videos that some students struggle to get the video to play. While this doesn't happen often, it does happen.

Still has some bugs to work out, in Beta stage for best features

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

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.

ilos is the video platform you have been waiting for.

Reviewed 4 years ago

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

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.

Lifesaver for accessibility

Reviewed 4 years ago

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 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.
