TodaysMeet – free backchannel and discussion hosting


 

TodaysMeet is a free service that allows you to create a back channel for your meeting, class, or presentation. You name it, create the hash tag (for Twitter) and select how long you want it to be kept before being deleted, and you are all set. You can also export/archive the conversation.

 

It is simple to set up and use. It can even be used over longer time periods for online discussions for classes.

 

Back channels are a way for students, meeting participants, or the audience in a presentation to post comments, questions, and discussions during the class, meeting, or presentation. They are becoming more and more popular. They can also be used to gather information and data from an audience.

    Thanks David – I’m a fan of Today’s Meet too and in fact, am presenting the topic of backchanneling in the classroom (using Today’s Meet) at the MA Day of Discovery tomorrow, March 10th!
