Communication Forums

  • Discord—Somewhat challenging to set up. YouTube tutorials here. An incredible free option for group communication, sending out updates, and keeping students accountable all in one place.
  • Facebook Groups—Not every student is going to have a facebook account, so not ideal, but very user friendly to set up and use. No phone notifications for announcement and messages like with Discord and Slack.
  • Google Classroom—Comprehensive solution to managing virtual education
