Formerly a gaming company called Glitch, Slack rebranded—or pivoted, to use the parlance of Silicon Valley—in 2013. With more than 10 million daily active users, it’s fair to say that Slack has caught fire. In the process, it has spurred clones from Microsoft, Facebook, Google, and more.
Sure, I like to think that I’m doing cool things with the über-useful collaboration tool in the classroom. Still, higher education is simply one industry that can stand to benefit from Slack’s functionality. To that end, I’d love to how you or your organization use Slack for my next book Slack For Dummies.
Connect with me if you’d like to tell me more and then we can chat about it—maybe even over Slack.
