Today's Meet Tutorial

Go to http://todaysmeet.com.

  • You do not have to login. We'll do that later.
  • Pick a name for a room. This actually becomes part of the URL so keep it simple.
  • You can select how long you would like to have the room open. For now leave it at one week.
  • Click on Open your room.
  • Now you need to share the URL with your students. That's why you kept the name of your room simple. Ex. todaysmeet.com/frazier
  • The teacher should pose a question or comment and have students respond.
