Live streaming is an emerging form of social media, which is fostering unique participatory online
experiences through combination of live media forms. We have observed that
live streams for videogames on twitch.tv, through the unique participatory
experiences they afford, often serve as online places supporting the formation of
In this research, we are working to build further understanding of contexts in which live
streaming enables shared community formation and experiences. As part of this, we are working to
design and develop new tools to support expressive and participatory live media experiences.
Specifically, we are working to integrate our research on
information composition and live media
to design a composition environment to support collaborative live media places.
Our research on live media places will be situated in online education contexts.
While MOOCs (edX, Coursera, Udacity) expanded online education's reach and scale,
they struggle to engender participatory learning.
Through iterative design of new live media composition tools, we are working to help online
students and instructors create engaging online places for participatory learning experiences.
