A Tool for giving everyone a voice



I often find myself needing to create a shared digital space on the fly, for interaction amongst a group when doing training or facilitating. In terms of speed, accessibility & price(free), this is my tool of choice for getting the job done. A good way to describe TodaysMeet is,  a free pop up private chat room that can be controlled by a presenter in real time.

What I like

I love how it allows everyone in a room to have a voice and that as a presenter I have a way of monitoring at a glance what sort of things are happening for the learners. It facilitates easy sharing and becomes an effective archive system too, as everything that is discussed is easily downloaded as a transcript at the end. It’s also fast which is important when doing workshops and time is limited.

Typical Usage 

  • Go to TodaysMeet.com
  • Associate your Google Account or Create Login
  • Pick a Room Name
  • Share the link to your Chat Room with participants
  • Chat
  • Download Transcripts of Session

Final Comments

This tool has  been around for quite some time now, but still seems underutilized to me. For anyone looking to be more collaborative in their classroom/workshop and wanting to encourage more active engagement I would definitely give this tool a go.
