Twitch Partnering with Learn2Esport for Streaming Curriculum Collaboration



twitch news

Amazon’s immensely lucrative and popular streaming platform Twitch is officially partnering up with European firm Learn2Esport that will see the two brands collaborate on a streaming curriculum that will help students better understand the streaming industry, and the careers within the industry.

Given the financial impact of successful twitch channels, it makes sense that a curriculum would be both needed, and prove to be a valuable asset. Learn2Esport provides esports program management tools and educational resources, which shows they are a solid fit for this new initiative.

A press release was issued to formally announce the partnership, and is making the rounds in twitch news on Monday.

The ‘Twitch-focused pathway’ will impact the core elements of being a streamer and managing a personal brand, along with how to become a better broadcaster and presenter. Additionally, it will highlight the tools of the trade, marketing and viewer engagement, and a look at entrepreneurial elements via legal and financial add-on modules, per the release.

“Learn2Esport has the vision to use the popularity and engagement of gaming and esports to provide students and high school programs with opportunities to build 21st-century skills that are in high demand by future employers” Mark “Garvey” Candella, Director of Student and Education Programs at Twitch said in an official press release.

“Teaching emerging, new, and digital media skills while students learn the soft skills required to work together is something one can be proud of. Twitch is honored to work with Learn2Esport to provide better opportunities for students.

“As the #1 streaming service, Twitch’s influence reaches all corners of the esports and gaming world” Rasmus Sandström, founder and CEO of Learn2Esport stated. “Their knowledge of the community building side of esports and their desire to empower the passion economy, positions Twitch to influence the education and future of the upcoming generation. We are very excited that Twitch has chosen to leverage their influence to benefit students. We are also very excited to work with them directly on educational curriculum and programs.”
