Univ Lib conducts webinar on streaming workshop for library staff

The Promotion and Marketing Committee of the UPLB University Library organized a webinar on “Streaming Workshop: Essential Tools in Hosting Virtual Events” last August 26, 2021, via Zoom.

The webinar aims to provide helpful tools in order to develop skills in hosting virtual events. Participants have learned the different techniques in controlling the virtual events through various tools and identified tactical ways in making innovative, interactive, and engaging virtual workshops/meetings/events. In opening the program, Ms. Concepcion DL. Saul reiterated the importance of having this kind of webinar and how very timely it is since all of our services and events are held virtually.

Sharing his expertise and wisdom as a resource speaker is one of the college librarians in the Main Library, Mr. Jarien G. Galorio, who has been spearheading a number of library events as well as university-wide events as the head of the technical team.

In his talk, he discussed the essential things needed in holding virtual events such as a checklist, PowerPoint, device set-up, and other technical requirements. He also introduced the Open Broadcaster Software (OBS), free and open-source software for video recording and live streaming.

In his demonstration, he has showcased video/audio capturing and mixing in real-time. Participants were also tasked to create scenes made up of multiple sources that include images, text, window captures, and more.

Mr. Galorio also demonstrated the one pc stream up to two pc streams and how to go live in any streaming destinations during virtual events.

The streaming workshop was attended by the staff from the Main Library and Unit Libraries. (Meichelle Ann Jenine Rivas)
