How it Will Work

Tools and Systems to Enable a Hybrid Cohort

  • Zoom — Livestream all of our classes, which will then be published to YouTube (we also love what Around.co is doing in the virtual space).
  • Slack — Asynchronous text based communication between students, instructors, and staff. Slack also allows our students to communicate and collaborate with each other and instructors outside of the classroom.
  • Discord — Voice communication and breakout rooms.
  • Calendly — Facilitating 1–1 meeting times between students and instructors. Check out our mentors page!
  • Google Forms — Issue forms and surveys to instructors, students and teaching assistants
