NACAT 2015 Live Broadcasts via Periscope
Posted to Educators' Forum on 7/21/2015

During #NACAT15 @ Joliet Junior College in Joliet Illinois, I'll be hosting Periscope sessions at various times this week.

Periscope is an app that makes it easy to broadcast (and watch) live events, you may have heard of it recently as it's become fairly popular in a short period of time. My plan is to launch a short Periscope session when warranted. One of the other features that periscope offers is the ability to access a replay of the session for approximately 24hrs. And if any of these prove to be worthy of republishing, we'll upload them to iATN.

If you have an iPhone/iPad, you can download Periscope for free in the app store:

For those following us on Twitter, you should be able to quickly sign into Periscope with your Twitter account, and then choose to follow iATN on Periscope as well, and you'll get a notification whenever we start a live broadcast. (Twitter owns Periscope, hence the close integration between the two services.)

If you're not yet using Twitter, but interested in this experiment, you'll need to create a Twitter account at and then follow us at This should make it easy to follow iATN on Periscope, in the People tab. Just click the "+" icon next to our name. You can also search for "iATN" on the people tab, to follow us.
