Virtual discussion boards can be powerful tools for collaboration! However, it can be challenging to set them up if they also require students to have accounts.
TodaysMeet makes it so easy to create a discussion board---you don't need an account to make one. You can also give it a unique name and set up when you want it to expire. Then just give your students the URL. It will prompt students to provide a "nickname" and voila!
Consider asking thought provoking question prompts or asking students to share ideas or questions on a topic. This is especially useful during a time that students may be watching a short video in class, as students can contribute thoughts, ideas, or questions they may have while the video is playing!
Oh---and if you do want extra features such as access control? Make a free teacher account on the website.
