"Webcasting High School Events For Beginners"
Saturday, November 4, 2017 (12 - 5pm)
Location: Benilde-St. Margaret's High School / St. Louis Park, MN
Every school administration has some level of interest in webcasting its events for family, alumni and fans who cannot attend events. Every school has at least one kid that loves sports and would jump at the opportunity to get involved with webcasting events for his/her school. Those students need an opportunity. High School Activities Hub is offering a one-day workshop for adults and students that will create a sustainable process for webcasting your school's events.
Why pay a company a large sum to come to your school and webcast or do an audio live stream for the same cost an individual can pay to learn to webcast multiple events? High School Activities Hub is hosting its first Webcast Workshop for beginners at Noon on November 4, 2017. All attendees will leave HSAH's Webcast Workshop 1.0 with the ability to go into a school and webcast an event.
Information About HSAH Webcast Workshop 1.0
Who can attend?
Athletic Directors, Coaches, Booster Club Members, Parents, Fans and Students who are interested in webcasting high school events. "Students" is bolded because we hope whoever attends our workshop will give students an opportunity to get involved in webcasting events at your school.
Why Should Someone Representing Your School Attend the workshop?
HSAH Webcast Workshop 1.0 will cover the A-Zs for a beginner who is interested in webcasting events but may find the entire process a bit intimidating to move forward on their own.
Why YouTube Live?
YouTube Live is a game-changer. YouTube Live just launched in August of 2016 and most students and alumni already use YouTube. If your school already uses another webcast/live streaming platform like The Cube, NFHS Network or Eduvision - no problem. Everything that is learned at HSAH Webcast Workshop 1.0 can be used to webcast on other platforms.
What if your school does not have webcasting equipment?
High School Activities Hub has done the search for equipment for you. Be aware that not all products work with a MAC or a PC. The compatibility search can be frustrating and long. All attendees will have access to the best prices on products that are compatible with either a PC or a MAC.
Other Information: Lunch will be provided. Attendees should bring their laptpop.
