Slack is a team chat app that will be our our backchannel for chat both on and off topic. You can log into the class Slack automatically with your Middlebury email account.
I’ve made various threads on Slack for On and off Topic chat. A little while into the semester, we’ll divide into working groups based on project foci, and we’ll set up workgroup areas on Slack where you can connect with your group for discussion, planning, and sharing of work.
I will communicate to you regularly on the Slack Announcements channel. For significant announcements, I will send emails out and duplicate those emails on the Slack Announcements channel so that you can easily find them there if need be.
