As was first reported by Read Write Web, Tiny Chat has launched a new service called Tiny Chat TV. Tiny Chat TV is designed to be a competitor to U-Stream. Tiny Chat TV allows you to create your own channel for streaming video to the web. I signed up for the service and created my channel in a matter of minutes. While broadcasting viewers of the video can chat (anonymously or as registered users) in the text box directly under the video.
Applications for Education
Tiny Chat TV could be useful for broadcasting professional development workshops to world. Tiny Chat itself can be useful for creating back channel sessions during a presentation or workshop. The combination of broadcasting and back-channeling can bring in even more viewpoints and comments.
