“We created a stream 10 minutes before our event started, put it up on a projector, and boom. It was done”. It’s that easy!

Skidmore College needed a means of engaging their graduating seniors in the events before commencement. During the week, there are a lot of fun programs for them. They encouraged the students to use the hashtag #Skid4Life in the days leading up to commencement and beyond, but that content wasn’t being shared between them. They wanted a way to show students what other students are talking about, while they were at these events throughout the week. Skidmore College needed an easy way to find #Skid4Life posts on Twitter and simultaneously stream them in real time.

Ever wondered how quick Strea.ma is to set up? Jackie from Skidmore College will tell you
“Strea.ma was so quick to set up! We created a stream 10 minutes before our event started, put it up on a projector, and boom. It was done. I was also incredibly thankful for the “filter” and “moderation” options, to avoid any inappropriate posts that may have been shared. I wanted to be sure everything that was being shared with our promoted hashtag was showcased to students, family, and friends during pre-commencement activities”.

Skidmore also had Strea.ma running in the dining hall where families gathered for lunch after the ceremony.
