Slack is a collaboration tool that I use in my classes to help facilitate communication and collaboration. Additionally, I encourage students to contact me using Slack rather than email.
You will receive an invite to join the WR 510 Slack group.
Slack can be used from a web browser, mobile device, and as a native Windows/Mac app.
- From your web browser: https://ctec126spring2021.slack.com (Links to an external site.)
- For Apple OS X: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/slack/id803453959?mt=12 (Links to an external site.)
- For Windows: https://slack.com/ssb/download-win (Links to an external site.)
- For iOS: Search for “Slack” in the app store
- For Android: Search for “Slack” in the Google Play store
I highly recommend downloading the desktop app for Windows/Mac.
Slack Video Tutorials
New to Slack? Well, there’s a bunch of video guides you can watch to learn how to use it https://slack.com/videoguides.
Slack uses the concept of “channels” to separate out conversations. In the WR510 group here are the channels I have setup:
- Announcements – used for class announcements
- General – General discussions about the class
- Questions – Used for questions you need to be answered
- Random – Used to share random things about HTML and web development
- Code From Class – Used to share code demoed in class
See you in Slack! Please say hello to the “general” channel when you can.
