The video games streaming format has a number of advantages for student engagement initiatives. Firstly, a
large number of students are already using these venues as entertainment. By running initiatives on a live stream
service we take activities to a platform that the students are likely already visiting, rather than directing them to a
service they wouldn’t otherwise use. Secondly, video games are inherently entertaining, the format keeps students
engaged even during breaks in interaction. We have been experimenting using video games live stream to open up
a new channel of communication between staff and students. We have found that the format supports informal
dialogue between the broadcasting team, and their audience and have created this guide to support other
educators who may wish to experiment with the format.
