Implement a 'Study' Category
With more people staying at home learning, and even for myself as I start school in August, I thought it would be kind of nice to have a category like "study buddies" where you could watch people study.
I think it would be great for streamers who want to talk out their subjects to an audience/see if their ideas make sense, or help them remember things.
This also gives the viewers ways to possibly improve their studying techniques and in turn learn more about the subject.
Or, if the person likes a quiet environment a viewer could be there just for support. I think it would be great if a viewer(s) and a streamer team up to keep each other accountable/help them focus.
Create a "Study with me" / "Study time" category.
2020 was a revolutionary year for streaming platforms where virtuality was taking the lead in adapting traditional media to a new way of being connected to the world through virtuality, choosing live streaming platforms as an option very much more open and accessible to the public.
New trends related to educational content on the platform were emerging as traditional media were adapting to virtuality where interaction with the chat proposed a greater closeness with the audience sharing a much more interactive environment for people who usually dedicate their time to education and study.
Adding these categories would promote educational content on the platform, make it easier to find it, and new content creators would emerge as well as educational institutions willing to broadcast live on Twitch as a communication channel to promote learning among the younger audience.
Within this category there will be several topics such as scientific dissemination, history, philosophy, theater, music, technology, programming, design and, many more, leaving a free choice of the specific topic that the streamer wishes to develop during its transmission.
Pomodoro (Study with me):
As a result of the virtuality of the classrooms in educational institutions, students spent even more time fulfilling their academic tasks, this gave the opportunity to share, through live broadcasts, that study time with other students who were going through similar situations , where the Pomodoro study technique is practiced, with the aim of making more efficient the productivity and concentration that you dedicate to a specific task, efficiently managing your time.
These categories would greatly benefit the average viewer who usually consumes this type of content, and in turn, would awaken the interest of the audience that is not familiar with this type of content on Twitch.
Agreed. I'm part of the language community, and I feel Duolingo should be classified as a game and Language Study should be a tag. There are other language learning programs used besides Duolingo, and in addition many people use books/audio or video recordings/flashcards and other non-game/non-computer-program study tools/methods.
Please add MARTIAL ARTS as a new category – it falls under fitness and health, but it's not really that.
We study and teach Japanese sword online.
Hi! My streamings are about this and I haven't found a category that fits with what I do. So I came to suggest exactly what you are talking about.
I hope someday Twitch reads your suggestion and thank you for mading it :D

There are people on Twitch who stream language study. Usually, they use either Just Chatting or Duolingo category. Why is this not as good as it could be:
— Just Chatting. People interested in watching language study streams can’t reach the streamers because the category is too big and there are no convenient filters for that (namely selecting two or more stream languages). Due to this, people eventually tend to stop streaming language study — they can’t reach their potential audience.
— Duolingo. Firstly, most people aren’t even aware this category exists. Secondly, there are a lot of other services people use that don’t have their own categories. For now, it’s a cool place for people to find each other.
What I suggest: 1) expand the current Duolingo category into Language Study. This will attract more people; 2) add an ability to select two or more stream languages so this way people can show what languages they speak. This will help viewers filtering streams so they can find only those they are interested in.
