Embrace the Backchannel

TodaysMeet is a web-based backchannel that helps connect a class in real time by allowing students to make comments, ask questions and provide feedback. This can be done when a teacher is giving a presentation, a documentary is being watched or utilized as a forum for breakout discussions. TodaysMeet doesn’t require anyone to signup. You can simply name your virtual room, how long you want the virtual room to stay active for and a URL (web address) is created.

  1. Sounds awesome! It seems like it may have the issue of not enough participation however. I know I will definately start using it though. Thanks for the info!
