Today’s Meet is a web tool that provides a backchannel chat platform for students. To create a new Today's Meet "room", open the website, enter a name for your room (green check indicates if room name is available), and select how long you want to keep the room open. You do not have to create an account in order to open a room, but your timeframe to keep the room open will be limited from one hour to one month. By creating a free account, you may choose to keep a room open up to one year. All posts on Today's Meet are limited to 140 characters, so students have to learn how to be concise in making their points. Room tools include an embed code for your page as well as options to show speaker colors, a choice between relative or specific dates on each entry, and the ability to download a transcript of the room feed.
