9 Tools for Live Streaming Just About Anything

So now, for example, brainstorming can be done with a wiki-like tool, and notes from a meeting or background research can become a blog post. Instead of saving bookmarks as private “favorites” in a web browser, you can publish them as social bookmarks.

Excellent set of tools to let you add live streaming to just about anything. It is easy enough to see that these sort of tools would be useful in legal education and certainly when used with Classcaster allow for all sorts of possibilities. I think the idea here is to open the room, removing the walls from the class/session/seminar/presentation to allow access to the broadest possible audience. Certainly applications for legal education could make use of any combination of these tools to enhance the classroom or open the symposium.

One thought here also is that the law.gov movement should really be using a tool set like this to open there discussions.

And keep in mind that using live streaming tools works best when usage is planned in advance.
