On Tuesday, October 20, 2015, I had an online conversation with Rich Phelps, eXtension Project Manager, about Slack. Slack is “a messaging app for teams” that can facilitate collaboration, particularly for distributed teams.
The conversation, which was presented as a webinar, focuses on why you might want to use Slack and how it is different than other communications tools. Since this was a discussion, rather than a show and tell, I’m posting the audio recording here, in case you are interested.
Thomas Vander Wal has a great post about what makes Slack different: Slack is more than chat: Why it is the trojan horse to better enterprise that is worth reading if you want to know more about Slack.
