Voorhees launches live streaming
November 21, 2019
Voorhees College recently launched live streaming to maximize direct communication with the institution’s constituents.
Charlene Johnson, vice president for student affairs and director of athletics, in conjunction with the Office of Communications, introduced the idea to highlight sporting events.
Johnson said many people inquired about ways to see the games if they were not local. “Live streaming had to happen to enhance engagement and exposure. Fans from all over the world can see all the great things happening at Voorhees College,” Johnson said.
Voorhees selected Sling Studio as the core of its streaming initiative because of affordability and quality. Currently, the institution streams all home men’s and women’s basketball games and major special events such as Coronation, Homecoming, and Commencement, to name a few.
“In this day and age, things must be accessible by multiple users at their own time and discretion,” said Curtiss Sumner, graphic designer and webmaster. “Voorhees’ audience has the opportunity to interact and view live events that occur on campus with a simple internet connection,” Sumner said.
He added, “We are currently producing various projects that provide students with learning opportunities to gain experience with content production.”
Live streaming at Voorhees supports the mission to increase enrollment, retention, and development.
