For a long time I was a supporter of using TodaysMeet to host backchannel conversations during classes and during conference presentations. Then eight week ago I had this horrendous experience with TodaysMeet during a conference presentation. As a result I have switched to using Tozzl for most of my backchannel needs. I used it during a presentation that I gave in Manitoba last week and it worked quite well.
Tozzl allows you to create a backchannel that has sections for chat, file sharing, and YouTube videos within one stream. You can also import the feed of a Twitter hashtag into my Tozzl backchannel. In the video embedded below I provide a demonstration of how to create a Tozzl backchannel.
