Todays Meet

TodaysMeet is the premier backchannel chat platform for classroom teachers and learners. Designed for teachers, TodaysMeet takes great care to respect the needs and privacy of students while giving educators the tools for success.


Students join fast, easy to start rooms with no sign up, and can immediately start powerful conversations that augment the traditional classroom.

What is the backchannel?

The backchannel is the conversation that goes on alongside the primary activity, presentation, or discussion.

TodaysMeet helps harness the backchannel and turn it into a platform that can enable new activities and discussions,extend conversations beyond the classroom, and give all students a voice.

Embracing the backchannel can turn it from distraction to engagement. Participants can learn from each other and share their insights, improving participation and deepening learning. TodaysMeet enables instant formative assessment, feedback, and much more.
