To imitate online education we have decided to host a discord server. That is an online communication platform on which you can hop on and off whenever you like! We have launched this server because we are used to work a lot together, and to chill in the hub together for coffee breaks. Now that we are forced to work at home this has become more difficult which is why we want to help. We hope to see you all on Discord!
How does discord work?
First of all I would advise to download the discord app via https://discordapp.com/download. If you do not want to, you can also use discord in your browser (preferably chrome). To join the server you simply have to click here. Before or after you have joined the server, you should make an account. On the right you see everyone that has joined the server, whom are divided into members and admins. You can send one of the admins a private message if you feel something is missing in the server. You can for instance also ask if you want us to create a new text or voice channel. If you are wondering what they are, take a look to the sidebar on the left. Here you see the different voice channels and text channels for all the courses, which you can use for studying. In the voice channels you can talk to each other by simply clicking on the channel to join. You can always join to have a chat or ask questions. You can also find the different social text and voice channels, in which you can chat and have a break. Discord can of course also be used to play games with each other like skribbl!
Getting tired of all the notifications? Just turn them off by going to the settings on the left bottom. On the left bottom you can also leave a channel by clicking on the telephone with a cross and you can share your screen or your face by respectively clicking going live and video.
Hopefully the server will help you out and we see you guys more often, like in the old days when you all came by for coffee! (:
Hint: No one around? Go into the general voice channel, so everyone can see that you are there, then someone will come eventually.
