Ustream.TV is a live interactive video broadcast platform that enables anyone with a camera and an Internet connection to broadcast to a world wide audience of unlimited size. Simply create your own channel on Ustream or broadcast through your own site.
With Ustream's interactive broadcast functionality, your viewers can personally interact directly with you and each other through a built in chat facility.
Your broadcast is recorded and available for viewing at a later time, which is great if someone misses the live event. However, the most appealing thing, for me, is that you can catch the broadcast live and participate via the chat if you choose.
Ustream is another tool that has great potential for use in education. There are already many teachers taking advantage of this technology. Here's a great example of a broadcast that I viewed last week - an informative and very useful presentation on using Google Apps in the classroom.
Produced and delivered by Kevin Jarrett. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
