TodaysMeet

Introduction

TodaysMeet creates isolated chat rooms that can be used in a variety of ways. It can allow students, conference attendees, or other groups of individuals to engage in live, online discussions in a user-created, invite-only chat space.

Things You'll Need
  • An internet connection.

  • Any internet-enabled device(s).

Steps
  1. 1

    Create room.

    • Go to www.todaymeet.com
    • Name your room. Room names must be original, and should be something easy for participants to remember and type. I’ve named my room DigiTAL_123.
    • Set how long the room will be open. You can choose to have the room open for as little as one hour or for as long as one year. I set my room to close in two hours.
    • Click Create your Room.

  2. 2

    Invite participants to join room.

    • Participants simply enter the room URL (todaysmeet.com/roomname) to open the room in their browser. My room URL would be todaysmeet.com/digiTAL_123. 
    • URLs are not case-sensitive.
    • A shortened URL (beginning with http://today.io) can be found below the chat box by clicking “Room Tools." This URL can be copied and shared in the exact same way as the full URL to link to the meeting.
