Back Channel During Workshops

Type of strategy: Brainstorming and DiscussionCollaborationEnergizers and State ChangersGroup ManagementVisual OrganizersWriting and/or Reflection

I was using TypeWith.Me to let workshop attendees collaborate and share ideas and questions as I presented. But it only allowed 16 on one page at a time. Now I will use. It allows people to organize their thoughts with a giant cork board of colorable Post-It notes.


Go to and create an account and a board with a theme. It may be good to preassign categories so the users in your workshop know where to place their ideas. Send the link to your workshop attendees to join in online to collaborate and share their ideas while you speak.
