On the 25th of February, the day of the JC Official Web launch, we successfully organized MSJC’s first LIVE stream. Being underbudgeted, since this is a Medical STUDENT Journal Club, I had to come up with a low budget setup and we managed to pull it off with only a Full HD Webcam a laptop and a free streaming service. Of course as a result, the video & audio weren’t exactly perfect but hey, we had great feedback so apparently people understood the situation.
In just the first day we had 298 unique visitors with 998 page views, most of which took the time to watch the awesome nearly 2 hour long lecture on HEART TRANSPLANTATION by Igor D. Gregoric, MD of Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute-TMC. Having such a good turnout online, we will definitely “invest” in a better video & audio stream in the future to make the viewer experience even better.
It was quite a nervous prep time in the days before the event but we nailed it ;) looking forward to making this a regular thing.
