A Backchannel for the mSchool?
As we consider features for the mSchool, we might want to think about whether to incorporate some type of backchannel for discussion. A report
on a discussion of backchannels from the recent THATCamp highlights some of the issues that builders of backchannels might want to take into account. One important message is that an effective backchannel involves both a technology and a set of appropriate practices. See also, this discussion of use of the backchannel in classes
and a new book
on the backchannel and presentations.
