Broadcast live video to the world. Why, you ask? Because you can.
Let me start over. There must be a better way to introduce this.
Imagine I'm on a job site and there is a piece of equipment too big to bring to the classroom. I want to provide training on it, but my class is back in the training room. Using Periscope, I broadcast live video and interact with the learners live via Twitter.
Was that a better introduction?
Periscope works with Twitter for you to follow people and watch their live video. If you love the UNL Cornhusker Marching Band, follow their band director/drill writer @DougBush2 for insights into their rehearsals and game day activities. He is a regular user. You can set an alert to know when someone is live on Periscope to watch.
This is an app you can find in iTunes and the Google Play store. Link it with your Twitter account to tweet when you go live with video. There is a live map for you to click on current video, but you never know what you may see. To send your own video, tap the camera icon, title the broadcast and GO!
How do you think you could use it?
Perhaps I'm out of town for a conference and want to recap my day with my team. Maybe I was sent onsite but need help. I can live broadcast to several subject matter experts and ask for their opinion.
These are just a few scenarios, but I'm sure you can come up with some innovative ways to use Periscope.
