Meebo. Chat in your announcements!

Got a great email from Lisa Star about using Meebo (a web-based instant messaging client) in her classroom. Lisa wrote:

I wanted you to know the Meebo widget is a huge hit. One of the most value added efforts I have done this term. The students are using it and making comments about loving it.

When they came in to explore yesterday for the first day of class –many popped into the chat and said hello – it was a great start to day one.

Joanie Lee also posted an exhibit in the KU Village Greenhouse about Meebo.

Below is a short walk through of meebo and how to embed a chat widget into an announcement.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
Here is a link to a larger version of the presentation.

Have a great day and I’ll see you on the web!

    I’ve been using Meebo since July to consolidate all of my Instant Messaging identities into one screen with one login. It has worked well. This use of the chat widget sounds great. Thanks for sharing both a new tool and a new practical application for it!

  2. I love this! I may just have to give it a whirl. Thanks, Will & Lisa!
