About Slack

Slack is the well-known communications app that can help you and your classroom get more done. Not only can Slack help you and your students better communicate on certain projects or tasks, but it can be a central hub to communicate about virtually anything related to your coursework. Slack is intuitive and easy to use, so you and your students won’t have any trouble communicating on the platform.

Teacher Review

Slack is one of the most widely used instant messaging app for business. This program is a collaboration hub for work where communications happen, and information is always at your fingertips. 

Slack provides companies with a convenient place for teams to connect, but that app has more function than messaging. It comes with a video and voice call feature that lets you start and join a video conference with members of a particular channel. This gives you a way to communicate face-to-face with other members of your team even if they are offshore.

Furthermore, Slack lets you share documents to your channels. It comes with a drag-and-drop feature for easy file sharing. You can also tap the plus icon next to the message field to browse your folders. You can also add messages to your files if you wish. Anyone in the channel can click the file to open it or have it downloaded.

Slack also permits a lot of third-party integrations including workplaces such as Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Trello, and OneDrive. You can share files from these workplaces by simply pasting the link to the file in the message box and send it like a normal message. The app creates rich snippets every time you post a link, giving you a preview of the files shared on your channel. You can also import a file from a third-party app by clicking the plus icon and selecting the files saved in your cloud service.

Slack is a great app that can rival popular workspaces like Basecamp and Asana. The app is so rich in features you probably can find all you need for your company’s needs. It is tailored to conquer terrible communication problems suffered by most modern offices. It also allows integration giving you the option to add more features that can help your production. And with its highly intuitive design, you can lower the time your team spent in learning the app. What’s more, you can download the app for free. So, if you own a small business or just getting around to starting up one, Slack is a program that can help you build the right channel to success.
