Share This Post

As schools progress and grow through their live-streaming journeys they are constantly looking for ways to increase engagement. 

One way that schools can drive engagement is by purchasing new equipment to up the quality of their stream. While this way works, most schools can’t afford to be constantly buying the latest and greatest gear. 

We have identified one way to increase engagement to your live stream that is free and teaches your students a new skill.

In this blog post, we will explain the what, how, and why around graphics and how they can help increase engagement to YOUR live stream!

What Graphics Could Look Like In Your Broadcast

Schools can utilize graphics in multiple different ways throughout their live streams to engage the audience at a new level. 

In the graphic below, you can see how one of our amazing #strivschools, Crete, utilized a simple lower third graphic to put more information on the screen.

Another way that schools can use graphics to drive engagement is by posting them on social media. By posting graphics with the time of the game as well as where viewers can watch, you are directing as much attention as possible to your live stream.

Other examples of broadcast graphics can be sidebar, frames, player of the game, matchup, team info, stats, and more! There is no limit of creativity for your students. Watch how they become driven by designing and how your broadcast transforms.

Now that we know what graphics are and how effective they can be, let’s dive into how you and your students can create them for free!

How to Create & Edit Broadcast Graphics

Whether your school has adobe products or not, there are plenty of free tools for creating and editing graphics. Whether it’s Canva, Adobe Express, Pixelmator, or Adobe Premiere and Photoshop—find what tools and software work best for your students and create!
