  38. 38. ©drtamil@gmail.com 2020 Stream 4 • Sorry, I only have 3 streaming sites. • I kept talking about registering on Twitch. Maybe I should do so, just to have another platform to stream to. • So I can’t demo streaming to the fourth site, but it is possible, albeit at a lower resolution.
  39. 39. ©drtamil@gmail.com 2020 Conclusion • You don’t have to spend USD6375 to set up a system to stream your lectures online for your institution. Instead you can pull it off with a budget of RM1604 for the faculty by buying it online. • Of course the Finance Department won’t allow you to do that because public universities can’t buy stuff online, instead you must go through the local vendors. • But at least I have proven that technology wise, it is feasible. I don’t want to comment on the other issues.
