Live stream using Octoprint for students

I run two makerspaces and am trying to find a way to use Octoprint to make a live stream of our 3D printers for students to view when they go to a certain website (Canvas). 

We are planning to have our 3D printers all hooked to RPis and connected to Octoprint and octolapse. I'll list the things I am trying to accomplish because you all are way more experienced with this than I am.

1. Let students view a set of live streams that each show a 3D printer working. I can host this through YouTube, Twitch, ETC and try to embed the player if I need to. 

2. Let students view and download a timelapse of their print. 

3. Get a dashboard that allows me to monitor all of the printers at once (aprox 6-10 printers at a time). 


Any ideas?

RE: Live stream using Octoprint for students might do. You can use it to control and monitor multiple printers and you can share the webcam streams.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
