BackChannel Chat is a chat / discussion tool that is designed for two participant types:
Teachers / Moderators / Facilitators
These are the people that control the moderation capabilities of the tool. These people can invite other teachers / moderations into the discussion.
Students / Participants
This is everyone else. They can participate in the discussion / chat at the discretion of the moderators.
Creating a Free Room:
Creating a room is easy, do it right now. We ask for your email address so that we can send you the details of your room, two things are important here:
1. The actual room URL - this is what you can sent to invite participants.
2. The 'Teacher Code' - This is the code that a teacher / moderator needs to join the discussion as a teacher / moderator.
Creating a Paid Room:
1. As a paid user you can login to BackChannel Chat, then you can click on 'My BackChannels', this will then show a list of all your previous BackChannel discussions. Clicking on the link will then open the chat / discussion with you as the teacher / moderator. As you create new rooms as a paid user, we don't send you an email each time as they will be listed in your 'My BackChannels'.
2. If your looking for a teacher code for one of your rooms, you just need to click on the settings -> invite menu option.
As always, let us know what you think. Start a free chat room now.
