Have you heard of todaysmeet? How about Nepris?
These are easy-to-use, free online tools that have many interesting possibilities for adult basic skills teachers and students. I have just added them to our list of tools to evaluate, and hope that some of you will look at and evaluate them.
I am planning several ways to use todaysmeet, including at a presentation I will be doing next week with some Boston adult literacy education administrators.
I have been watching a few of the over 1800 Nepris archived interactive industry professionals classroom videos; they have fabulous potential for career pathways, and possibly also for writing assignments. The possibility of adult basic skills classes doing a live interactive video with an industry professional is also appealing. I will post something in the Technology and Learning CoP about this shortly.

Thank you for sharing these two resources David. I tried out Todaysmeet and found it very easy to use in terms of creating an audience chat room during a presentation. I looked over the other resource, and I liked the concept, but I tend to shy away from fee based resources. I would love to hear if others find the service as effective as it looks and as it is described.
I did want to share that Google just added a live audience chat to their Google Slides just a couple of weeks ago. You can check it out here. It is called Google Slides Q&A
Hi Ed and Steve,
Todaysmeet is free. As far as I know there is no premium version.
Nepris has a free version for an individual teacher, and a premium version for schools and school districts that comes with other features such as training.
Thanks for the information about Google slides.
