Discussion topics allowed students to engage, spurring each other forwards, and encouraging one another through their struggles. Having mentors and teachers enter the discussions provided a key touch point to connect the students in a more intimate way.
One of the key pieces of the platform is a rich variety of video content, from music sets, lectures, and technical lessons, to live interviews. By capturing the technical lessons in a sterile studio environment we were able to capture greater detail, providing more value to students as they hone their craft.
Delivering the quality and volume of video effectively proved to be a key challenge we had to overcome to make the platform successful.
While developing the WorshipU application, we continually ran in to issues with their existing third-party video hosting and delivery system. It was also identified as the most expensive part of the technology stack. We were able to recommend, develop, and deliver a self-rolled video hosting and delivery solution that was not only more reliable, but also cost a fraction of the third party service.
