Interactive tools to facilitate discussion

There are a number of services available to facilitate interaction among faculty and students when teaching a remote class.

We’ll provide a demonstration of the following services: Ed discussion forums, Slack chat, Panopto video assignments, Google Jamboard interactive whiteboard, Perusall collaborative document annotation, and WordPress blogs.
