Welcome to Slack, our communication platform during the week of the International Summer School. There will be office hours for you to chat with the team and ask technical, content-related or event-related questions! You are also welcome to use the Slack Tool for communication during the group work!
You can download the free software here or in the App Store of your phone:
Once you have downloaded the software and logged in, you will be redirected to the Slack browser page. Here you have to enter the link to the workspace of the Summer School, which you should have already received via mail. Slack will then open the desktop app again and you can get started!
On the upper left corner you can find all of the settings for your profile, personal messages and current status.
Underneath the settings you get access to different channels and personal chats with individuals. During the Summer School we will use the channel #summer-school. But you’re welcome to create additional channels for the communication in your group work.
In the personal chats and channels you have the possibility to write messages, add files or address certain people via the @ symbol.
Now that you have gotten a short introduction, do not hesitate! Write us during our daily Slack-consultation rounds!
