On Monday 2.1 class we voted to use Discord as our preferred communication method. Here is what you need to get started with Discord.
STEP 1: Create a Discord Account.
You can create your account on the Discord registration page, or in the app.
There are a few ways you can use Discord:
- iOS Mobile App
- Android Mobile App
- Windows Desktop App
- macOS Desktop App
- Linus Desktop App: deb or tar.gz
- Web Browser
The Getting Started Guide also walks you through downloading the app and creating an account.
If you don’t create an account before joining then you will need to do that when following the join link.
STEP 2: Join the Class Server
Once you have an account, you can join the class server. Our server is MMP 350 and you need an invitation link to join.
I am not publishing this on the web to reduce unwanted people joining. You can find it in the discussion board in our Course Profile and it is in an announcement on Blackboard.
STEP 3: Try it out. Read some documentation if you need more info.
Here are some guides and videos if you need it.
