Anomaly are improving schools with the use of YouTube. In this blog post, we explore some exciting developments at Anomaly as we re-launch our YouTube channel. After uploading videos for a couple of months now, we thought it would be better to take a look at the Anomaly YouTube channel and make a few changes. In this blog post, learn more about what’s to come for schools in the UK and the Anomaly YouTube channel. What’s changing? After taking a look at our existing network, we’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into improving the channel we already have. Listening to schools and the feedback we receive is something we take very seriously at Anomaly and with this feedback we have devised a 12 month plan for our YouTube which aims to make the life of schools easier with the use of video tutorials. We understand the voice of all of our schools, some videos that we’ve planned aim to make you a complete expert with Anomaly Film kit. In addition to the full time support that we already offer we have created tutorials for not only the editing side of things, but also the practical aspect, planning, technique and much more. We’d like to give you a sneak preview of our first video which should be live later this month. Our first video will go in detail on how to put up a green screen in addition to how to pack away a green screen. Having collected feedback from our schools this seems to be one thing that can be tricky for teachers and students. If you’d like to take a look at our videos already on our YouTube channel you can do so by looking at the video below, the videos aim to improve schools: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4iLe3DvQqE If you would like to incorporate any Anomaly technology into your school, or find out more about our vast range of services in the education sector please do not hesitate to call us on 0844 579 0880 or alternatively you can email us on the usual address info@anomalygroup.co.uk Twitter | Facebook

Web streaming always seems like a scary concept, but in this blog post Anomaly UK looks at 3 tips to utilise web streaming in the most effective way. Web streaming is just one of the varied selection of services that Anomaly UK offers. In this blog post you can find some simple tips surrounding web streaming. Establish your audience You’ve just expressed your interest in web streaming, you’ve looked into what web streaming is and how it works and you’re just about to start streaming, but wait! Before diving head first into the project it’s important to establish your audience. Who is going to be watching your stream? What interests do they have? What do they want to see? These should be just a few questions you ask yourself before publishing any content on your stream. Once you have done some initial research into your audience, you are then ready for the next step. Preparing the stream Once the web streaming software has been installed on your system, it’s simple to get set up and provide the right message to your audience. Anomaly will provide a unique link that you will be able to incorporate onto your schools website with ease. This will allow your school to push any promotional videos out when required. Protect your stream Everything is in place, you’ve established your audience, you’re seeing your creation come to life, but there’s one more step you need to take before you can celebrate. You need to protect your stream by utilising the many features that come with the web streaming software. Anomaly suggests that you put a password on your stream so only those with the password can see what’s being broadcast. Don’t worry, this can be taken off at any point. Practice, practice, practice! As with every new piece of technology it’s important to practice, it may seem daunting at first, but once you’re a master of web streaming you will soon see the benefits that it holds! For more inspiration and to see how other schools are making use of green screen, look through our blog or visit our Facebook page.
