Sibme Livestream gives users the ability to stream their classroom or other activities while also recording. That recording will then be uploaded to your Huddle for others to view. The great thing about Sibme Livestream is that during the broadcast viewers can give real-time feedback and make comments on the video. From privately sharing a live lesson in real-time to their instructional coaches and peers to recording a live meeting for others to view at a later date, Sibme Livestream, from both the web and mobile apps, is another valuable tool in the Sibme tool belt.

Who is this article for?

Based on the default user settings in the Sibme platform, you should have permission to complete this task if you are one of the user levels listed below. If you do not see the screens in this article, you can ask your administrator if you have permission.

  • Users

  • Admin

  • Super Admin

  • Account Owner

Steps to accomplish the task:

Livestream can be turned on for an Account by an Account Owner in Account Settings. Please be aware that by default, Livestream is available to Admins, Super Admins, and Account Owners, but Users can be given the option to do Livestream when a Huddle is created by clicking on More Settings and choosing the “Huddle Members can go live in this Huddle option..

From the Huddle where you want the video uploaded, choose the green plus button and choose Livestream.

Next, choose Go Live to begin recording. All members of the Huddle will be notified that a Livestream has begun. If the user is in the app, they will receive a notification in the app. If they have the mobile app installed on their phone, they will receive a notification on their phone.

You can also do Livestream from both Sibme’s native Android or iOS apps.

Be aware that a viewer on both the web app and mobile platforms will be able to comment, give feedback, attach tags, and use Frameworks/Performance Levels just like they would be able to while watching a recorded video uploaded to a Huddle.

Once you have stopped the recording, you have the option to save or cancel the recording. If you discard the recording, any comments or framework/performance level notations will be saved but the video won’t. If policy won’t allow a recording to be saved, this allows the teacher to get feedback, be observed, and comments to be made without the recording being saved.

Comments made on a live video cannot be edited and no new comments can be added to a saved livestream video once it has been uploaded.
