There are tremendous opportunities to tell the story of your school through mobile living streaming apps. You can potentially provide the public with opportunities to catch a glimpse into the life of leadership; show prospective students tours of facilities; and take the viewers inside the classroom. Mobile live streaming apps also present new challenges, particularly around the topics of privacy and cyberbullying.
On episode 37 of FIR on Higher Education, University of Michigan Director of Social Media Nikki Sunstrum will talk about how she is thinking through these opportunities and challenges. Specifically, we’ll cover:
– Takeaways from the University of Michigan’s use of mobile live streaming apps to date
– The differences between Meerkat and Periscope
– Thinking through a live streaming strategy
– Potential opportunities
– Privacy and cyberbullying matters
In my reports section, I discuss an article written by two academics on the disruption within higher education and why marketers / communicators need to work on having a clearly defined value proposition.
