I've never done this before since Google+ dropped HoA, but today I invited EVO2017 moderators or anyone interested to help me figure out how to set up and stream a…
Vance Stevens's insight:
#learning2gether has been honing its streaming skills lately through practice with Minecraft + Discord and Bb Collaborate, but Episode 352 is the first time we have attempted something that used to be simple, streaming a HoA so that it would play as a #YouTube/Live event. The audio was wonky until I went to a VPN, and there was no real agenda apart from just making it work, but the video here records stimulating conversation among participants, and the text transcripts explain how it was set up and executed. Near the bottom of the post, you'll also find links to recordings made at the IATEFL / TESOL joint online conference held Earlier this Week.

Vance Stevens and Jeff Lebow look into what is going on with HoA, and what to do about it | Learning2gether | Scoop.it
Learning2gether episode 342

On Sunday Aug 28 Vance Stevens asked perennial online buddy Jeff Lebow to join him to help check out what is going on with HoA, and what to do about it. We scheduled the event in Hangout on Air but just before show time encountered debilitating sound issues. Fortunately Jeff had been been experimenting with YouTube Live to the point where he had tested out the encoders, and he was able to bring his past experience webcasting-the-hard-way to bear on a solution that saved the show by bringing participants together in a combination of streaming YouTube + Skype for voice conversation.
Vance Stevens's insight:
This latest learning2gether episode 342 was about what to do when HoA is no longer a part of Google+ after Sept 12. Jeff Lebow  demonstrated how to stream through YouTube Live in a way that others could join us using voice on Skype. Vance captured his side of the event using Camtasia and Jeff's stream recording was preserved on YouTube. Both embeds are here, along with the mp3 rendition and notes on how to pull this off in the future.

Vance Stevens's insight:
At http://sco.lt/72O1OT, I note that TESOL, Inc. archives its conference recordings behind paywalls; whereas IATEFL freely shares its archives worldwide. However, the CALL Interest Section in TESOL has been webcasting under the radar from TESOL conferences since 2002, and at its 2018 conference, even more openly than before, from its booth in the conference Exhibition Hall. This post provides some background to this and links to video recordings of all presentions webcast from the CALL-IS Technology Fair and from the Electronic Village in the Exhibition Hall at TESOL 2018, Chicago.
