TodaysMeet gives you an isolated room where you can see only what you need to see | FutureLearnTech | Scoop.it

Imagine you're giving a presentation where you can read the mind of every person in the room. You'd have an amazing ability to adjust to your audience's needs and emotions. That's the backchannel.

Using Twitter/Facebook etc. has become a great way to do just that. But they arn't appropriate for every situation, if people arn't on them, you don't want the discussion to be public, or you need to see only relevent updates.


That's where TodaysMeet comes in. TodaysMeet gives you an isolated room where you can see only what you need to see, and your audience doesn't need to learn any new tools like hash tags to keep everything together.
