Live Streaming Video So Easy!

As you may know we are hatching eggs in class and the big day is fast approaching! It may begin on Sunday and the kids won't be there to see it.... So I had a brilliant idea to find a way to stream it live online. I was so excited today to find and easy and FREE way to stream this live!!!

You create a simple free account, set up a channel and you are ready to broadcast live! You can choose audio or no audio. You can use a web cam or even your phone! It is also easy to share the link and embed it. Not only can you stream live, but you can record during the stream also. Check it out!


My mind has been spinning with all of the possible fantastic uses for this. You could broadcast an awards ceremony live, class play or anything really. It could possibly be used for a parent to observe their child in the classroom setting. I'm sure there are all kinds of permissions I would need to have signed.

How might you use this???

On another note, I am now a 5 Star Blogger!
