Slack is a collaboration hub enabling better connections for working teams through a searchable platform for messaging, content sharing, and integrations. Aliviane is launching Slack for all employees in Summer 2020 and it is also available to instructors in their courses.
The video below is an overview of slack.
While email is still the official form of communication at Aliviane, Slack is being positioned as a complementary communication platform focusing more on collaboration, informal conversations, and integrations with other platforms (e.g., zoom, outlook, google drive/calendar, dropbox, etc.). Yes, Slack is another communication platform but this one has the potential to transform the way people at Aliviane communicate and collaborate.
