Students across the country can ask President Barack Obama questions online and tune in at 4 p.m. to see the answers.
Viacom will stream “A Conversation with President Obama” live and on-demand on BET.com, CMT.com, MTV.com and Tr3s.com. The town hall meeting will take place in front of roughly 250 young people, and Obama will answer questions from the in-person and online audiences.
Via the “Twitter Tracker,” a web-based tool that will be used to track town hall comments and questions, users can tweet the hashtag “ask” plus any specific issue of interest. For example, if an individual had a question about education, he or she could tweet, “#askeducation” followed by the question.
Questions can be asked at any time.
