Livestreaming Video Assignment with Periscope by Jeremy Littau

Professor Littau of Lehigh University has created an assignment for his students on livestreaming video using Periscope. It is licensed under Creative Commons, and he is happy if you want to remix it. His goal is for students "to experiment with the technology and think about journalistic use." He said the results of the assignment for his students were interesting. "Writers who never thought about how to pan the camera slowly or watch their giggles realized; unlike with video editing, you can't remove something from a live event."

His big caution before making an assignment: Shooting Live Video can use up a mobile data plan quickly. Students should look for shooting areas that are wifi enabled.
