Effective collaboration tools

Last week, I wrote about the importance of establishing a routine, and of keeping in touch with your team. I did not, however, talk about specific tools. This is the post where I do that. Without further ado, here are the tools I’ve been using:

One-to-one, many-to-many

  • Discord
    • An excellent tool for voice and text chat, commonly used for gaming. Channel functionality to divide into teams, subjects, or similar.
  • Google Meet
    • Text chat, video conferencing, and call-in options
  • Microsoft Teams
    • Text, voice, and video chat, well integrated with Office 365
  • Skype for Business
    • We use Skype for Business for a lot of our internal communications, though it is being phased out in favor of Slack. Excellent for one-to-one and group conversations.
  • Slack
