Scratch That Twitch: Live Streaming in the Classroom

Twitch was originally a platform for live streaming games but branched out into talk, education, and other live entertainment.  We’ll look at the basics of setting up a live stream, equipment needed, OBS setup, choosing a streaming platform, building a brand, growing your audience, and use in the classroom. By the end of the workshop, participants will set up a live stream virtual cam through OBS with a chyron.
