Live stream & on-demand playback2020-10-21T11:59:28+02:00

Project Description

Collegerama is arranged (before COVID-19) as an on-demand video service. We would like to suggest to choose recording for on-demand playback as default, because this allows more users to use our platform simultaneously.

Collegerama can currently serve a total of up to 1000 current users of live streams, regardless of how many lectures are broadcast live. Because this number can be reached quickly when streaming first-year lectures (with more than + 500 students per course), we have to come up with solutions to prevent the servers from over their capacity.  Together with the IT department of TU Delft, we have currently upscaled the server park to 100% capacity. At the moment, next steps for upscaling/improving are being discussed with the supplier of our platform and everyone involved.

For an expected online audience of less than 300 people, Collegerama can properly facilitate a good livestream.
We want to be able to support as many courses as possible with live stream. However, if we receive too many live stream requests, we will have to either secure a maximum number of viewers per live stream or ask if on-demand could also be considered.

Please see the information on the different options for livestreaming in regard to online group sizes.
