TodaysMeet is a backchannel tool used during a presentation so that the audience can post questions, add resources and ideas, and collaborate with each other as the presentation is going on. One use of this tool in the classroom is to project the page on the wall as the teacher is teaching. As students post their questions, they can be reviewed by the teacher before the class ends to clear up any points of confusion.
