This is a great tool. I especially appreciate that it has a ZERO tolerance policy for inappropriate content.
Simply put, UStream is a way to quickly and easily create audio and/or video recordings that are broadcast on your very own channel. I created a channel called "Zachervision" and figured out this morning how to embed my first video here on my blog (you can view it at the bottom of this post).

There are a number of ways to leverage this tool in the classroom:

  1. Have students create a commercial in class about the current subject being studied.
  2. Create a video lecture(s) for students to view in the event that inclement weather prohibits them from attending class for an extended period of time.
Once a video is created, it can be uploaded to sites such as Facebook, YouTube, or embedded in a blog (SEE BELOW).

  1. Several terrific applications.

    Please take a few moments and embed one of your sample Ustream videos to fulfill the remaining requirements.
