Yesterday, I mentioned I’ll be using YouTube to record short videos that provide instructions for my students. Our school is asking that we make one day a form of virtual ‘office hours’, so I’m thinking of using YouTube Live. I can sit there. If students have questions they can type them.
By the way, if you want to use YouTube’s livestream option, you must activate it 24 hours prior to using it. Also, don’t forget to record your video as Unlisted so you don’t have just anyone showing up for office hours!
Zoom seems a bit much for me, personally. I don’t think I’ll have as many students needing the sort of live help my colleagues teaching math or language might need. Also, I considered Google Hangouts. Anyone see a downside to using YouTube Live?
