More and more channels are opening on Twitch for something
else than video games.
Recently, I’ve witnessed the followings:
- A comedian, trying to kill the monotony of the pandemic and relive the feeling of a theater room
- A journalist decrypting the information every morning
- News TV channels securing an URL and using them as a new broadcast frequency
- Professionals streaming their work to be part of the build-in public group
So it got me wondering. Could Twitch be used for Education?
There are already channels teaching other people stuff on
Youtube. So it could be done on Twitch with some adjustment.
At first, it could be a specific topic to attract a specific
audience, but if it works, any topics could be addressed.
Here are some pros and cons for making an educative channel succeed on Twitch.
The youth is there already. Watching their favorite streamers
playing or participating in epic events.
Interactive. As in a classroom, there is an interaction between
the audience and the presenter through the chat.
Replay. When selected, each stream can be saved and
accessible for free. These can also be reused as the beginning
to be replayed at a different time.
Fun competition. You’ll “compete” with entertainment
channels. So you better make it enjoyable to learn if you want
to have a viewership.
Internet access required. Self-explanatory.
Monetization. How will this monetize? If you count the crowd
it might be risky as I’m unsure if people are ready to subscribe
and donate to teachers?
