Swedish education tech company Learn2Esport announced a partnership with Amazon-owned streaming platform Twitch that will see the companies work together to create a curriculum that focuses on the business of content creation and streaming from an “esports perspective.”
This curriculum, aimed at high school and college students hopes to introduce the streaming ecosystem from an esports perspective, detailing available career opportunities, technology used, creating content, learning broadcasting skills, owning a personal brand, marketing, and audience engagement, among other aspects, according to Learn2Esport.
The curriculum is being developed through Twitch’s Student and Education Programs.
Launched in 2016, Learn2Esport focuses on students in Sweden and other countries in Europe. The company will launch its educational program in North America in January, with plans for a similar effort in Southeast Asia in the future.

Italian esports media company Dive Esports has partnered with Twitter to “promote and monetize premium content” hosted on the official Twitter channels of its teams, the Samsung Morning Stars and Tempra Esports. The partnership is part of Twitter’s Amplify Program, which helps advertisers connect with sports and entertainment content that is “brand-safe.”
This month, Tempra Esports will launch a “Twitter Live activity Q&A” with players, staff, and guests, answering questions from the community regarding their matches, giving tips, and generally interacting with its audience. Dive did not disclose what activities Samsung Morning Stars will take part in on Twitter.
Tempra Esports is an Italian esports organization that focuses on Rainbow Six Siege. Owned by Samsung, Samsung Morning Stars is also an Italian esports organization that fields teams in a number of games including Rainbow Six Siege, League of Legends, Fortnite, Overwatch, Apex Legends, and Hearthstone. Both are managed by Dive Esports.
Twitter’s Amplify Publisher Program allows content creators to monetize video content on Twitter and connect with advertisers, though it must meet certain guidelines to qualify: it can not promote sexual content, graphic violence, illegal products and services, or hateful, abusive, and sensitive content.
