In addition to this online learning environment we use a lot of other tools. For example, for making conversations and exchanging files we use other free online tools.
These tools are selected because we find them very powerful. Probably, some you may also use when running your own online services. It may therefor be useful to explore these tools already:
Slack is our tool to communicate to groups in addition to standard e-mail. For every program member we send an invitation to slack.
Accept an invitation is going through the following steps:
- Click the invitation link.
- Review the invitation details, then click Continue.
- Choose the workspace you’d like the channel to be a part of, or click Sign in to another workspace.
- Review the channel details. If you’d like to change the channel name or make it a private channel, click the pencil icon (these changes will only apply to your workspace).
- Click Accept Invitation.

Well, probably you’ve already met us through the use of Zoom. When you’re a inside member you did. As above, Zoom is a Video-call-app. Like Skype, but then better: its more stable. That is why it has grown very quickly compared to Skype in the past period.
