TodaysMeet/Chatzy/Edmodo- Backchannel – Talk & Listen

10 01 2010

Talk. Listen.
Make your very own private chat room with TodaysMeet. Educators can make a chat room for students to discuss and ask and answer questions while watching a video. Great resource for in class or homework collaborative discussion. Create your own chatroom Name, pull in Twitter accounts, and close the room when done.

TodaysMeet helps you embrace the backchannel and connect with your audience in realtime.

Encourage the room to use the live stream to make comments, ask questions, and use that feedback to tailor your presentation, sharpen your points, and address audience needs.
The backchannel is everything going on in the room that isn’t coming from the presenter.

The backchannel is where people ask each other questions, pass notes, get distracted, and give you the most immediate feedback you’ll ever get.

Instead of ignoring the backchannel, TodaysMeet helps you leverage its power.

Tapping into the backchannel lets you tailor and direct your presentation to the audience in front of you, and unifying the backchannel means the audience can share insights, questions and answers like never before.
