Campuswire is an engaging and modern online discussion tool that replaces discussion boards with a single platform that combines course discussion, announcements, and Q&A. In the free version, each class has a Class Feed as well as a Chatroom feature. Direct Messaging can be used to communicate with students, instructors, and classmates one-on-one.
To get started, visit the Campuswire website and sign-up for a free account. Use your PLU account to sign-up.
Important: At the end of each term, instructors should delete the Campuswire class that's associated with the course in order to comply with FERPA.
