Given that PRIVACY means a lot to us here at the White Hatter, we have invested in a “premium” broadcasting platform. Utilizing this platform, we cannot see the class, a student, or even screen capture their image; more importantly, neither can anyone else online. However, participants can still interact with us live, real-time, via a text-based Q&A. We also do not require a teacher, student or even a parent to enter their email to register for the event thus preventing us, or a third party from collecting personal emails which many other platforms require.

Also, given that we have full control of the virtual production, it prevents problematic issues such as “zoom-bombing” from occurring. To access our virtual production, there is no downloading of an app or software onto a school, student or family computer, thus preventing the challenge of third party “shareware” being download.

All a participant needs to do is click on a link that we provide, enter the password, and as long as they have an internet connection, the participant(s) are now able to access our live virtual production.
