Supporting London South Bank University to increase enrolments with distance learning

London South Bank University (LSBU) has been working with StreamUK since 2012 to bring valuable video and audio content to their students around the world.


Primarily within the Health & Social Care department, StreamUK’s award-winning Media Platform has been managing video content that is delivered to students via LSBU’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

In early 2014 Keiron Spires (Principal Lecturer of eLearning and Learning Technologies) made StreamAMG aware that LSBU were looking to revamp their digital output in order to offer wider solutions and services to their students both on-campus and abroad. The aim was to use the state-of-the-art facilities as live venues to film and broadcast video for use within various departments. Additionally, LSBU wanted to take advantage of the growth in popularity of e-learning by offering Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

StreamAMG provided thorough consultancy and best-practice advice for LSBU to achieve this goal including site surveys, equipment advice and testing as well as enabling live streaming on Media Platform. The simple-to-use system allows LSBU to schedule a live stream in a player designed to their specification which can be embedded wherever they choose. StreamAMG’s robust infrastructure supports uninterrupted streaming in multiple formats to 99.5% of devices.

LSBU has successfully streamed numerous events since October 2014 to a global audience and are planning on increasing their output over the coming months.
