The events you host on campus are often ones alumni (and others!) would love to attend. Waiting to read the re-cap as a news release is hardly the same experience. Enter Periscope, Meerkat, Facebook LIVE, and other emerging platforms to capture events and share them in real time. In this episode of Advancement Live, Kim Brown speaks with experts from Princeton, the University of Rochester, and Alma College about traditional live streaming tools, as well as some of the new kids on the block. Guests will share lessons learned from the world of live streaming along with reasons why live video is a MUST for your 2016 alumni engagement strategy. Join us!
