Chemistry instructor Jessy Lemieux was recently interviewed by the Chronicle of Higher Ed for an article explaining why more and more college professors are using Twitch. Twitch is a live-streaming video platform, which has traditionally been used by gamers to record their play. Professors are now using it to connect with students, using the platform to give lectures and exam reviews and offer digital office hours. Students can send in questions, and since the sessions are recorded, they are posted once they are over. 
In the article "Streaming Live on Twitch: Your Professor," Lemieux said that using a video game platform in the higher education world may seem strange, but video games have always been at the cutting-edge of technology and communications. Plus, while education might not always receive the funding it deserves, investors are always putting money into entertainment products, and people routinely come up with new ways to use those platforms.
