First 'actual' mass teaching session using Facebook Live for @OUCisco (and it worked) ...

Keen to explore new platforms and ways of reaching those we are educating - I needed an 'available' platform. Suited to broadcast based mass teaching, which could be used by the most participants at the same time; without too many technical affordances, licensing or installation woes.

Enter Facebook Live - and it worked very well. Having discovered (with the the help of colleagues) how to integrate this technology with my desktop via Open Broadcast Studio.  We were ready to rock and roll - and that is what we did.

Below is the first session - colleagues at our Cisco ASC will be hosting more every Monday evening from mid-Feb onwards. The plan is to use this tool to reach as many possible with minimal effort.

It seems that it may work - with 250 signed up, we had 191 views and a reach of 350 in the ninety minutes. This 25 minute session was watched live as well as asynchronously - something that makes this worth the effort.
