I like this idea and think others would benefit as well.
I’d be interested in collaborating with you on this since I am concerned about promising full support via Slack (hence the forums) but do like the idea of a single central Slack channel when students can collaborate.
If I setup an official student Slack channel would you be interested in moderating it?
Of course all are welcome to break off into study groups, which is great, but to my knowledge there is not a group Slack going that folks have shared.
Sounds great with an official channel though probably best with a whole slack team and not just a channel that’s part of another team… so it got room to grow into different channels (one for each course at least) and live on for years!
Would be great if you could invite everyone that signed up to the slack team as well =) Happy to moderate when I can though I don’t think there will be much need if only paying students are invited to it!
Just remember that it is for community interactions and I only “officially” offer support for the course through the forums. But I agree 😉 It’s easy to hangout and communicate in Slack compared to a forum.
The open invitation link is new, so let me know if you have any problems joining!
