Hi Julian,


Not sure if this is quite in the area you are asking about but I have a few examples from Canada.


While not for university, there is fairly regular live streaming of professional development workshops across the country via our national adult English language training for immigrants website www.tutela.ca (Tiki, with BigBlueButton for webinars). It has been gaining traction over the past few years and I believe this February they will be having their first online conference. 


I work for a provincial government and we have also been exploring live streaming of language training courses for small regional communities which do not have sufficient numbers of immigrants to support a face-to-face classes. The main challenge there has been with technology and with educating the service providers. Colleges and universities are welcoming of the technology but it has been a challenge to get the instructors embrace the technology and adapt their approach to delivering language training to fit a hybrid/blended model.


Demand is definitely increasing amongst communities and administrators - it is the instructors who require the most encouragement for adopting the model into their own practices. I hope that by having more instructors participate in live streaming professional development activities, they will become more open to the technology.

Thanks. Do you get much call for live events? Have you / do you see it increasing / in the future?

Hi Julian, 
At Northampton we have Panopto for Lecture Capture and also we have used it occasionally for live streaming, we find that there is about a 20 second delay, but it’s not bad.

Subject: [Xerte] OT: Live Streaming Events
I’m doing some research around live streaming of events by Universities. It strikes me that with all the interesting stuff that happens in Universities, there is an opportunity to stream more events live, and promote a rolling programme of live events, inviting interaction with the audience as the event happens.
So far, it seems that most universities have the capability to stream events live, but only a few promote any sort of coherent rolling programme of events. Does anyone know of any good examples? Do you think there is an opportunity here – or do you think it would be resisted for various reasons / non-reasons?
Any comments welcome, thanks,
