Live Content & Higher Ed: Perfect together?

Live Content & Higher Ed: Perfect together?

Given at Case Multimedia Workshop in Washington D.C.

What place does instant streaming have in the context of higher ed marketing? It used to be that we'd have to arrange recording live events with a large camera, planning and coordination. Now? iPhones and other mobile devices give us access to apps like Periscope, Facebook/Twitter Live, Beme, Livestation and other tools that can be deployed at a moment's notice. Explore the place of live content, the art of engaging (and retaining) users and measuring the impact of live video integration into a social media content calendar and strategy plan. Discuss tactics, training and discerning the best ways to deploy live content to maximize its reach and impact.

    impact the decisions of what we broadcast?
  8. Things to think about

  9. Be judicious. Ask yourself about appropriateness before you start.

  10. “To give you what you want without you having to

    ask for it — before you even were certain that you wanted it — is the condition to which all media aspires.” - Tim Carmody
  11. The integration of Periscope and Facebook video make them attractive.

    This is powerful, but you can’t abuse it.
  12. Ask yourself why

  13. Live streaming isn’t a panacea. Use it to extend your

    existing efforts.
  14. Live streaming isn’t one-way street. People can reply & will

    let you know if you miss the mark.
