Jennifer Hogan tells Hack Learning creator Mark Barnes about her initial experience with the backchannel, which it turns out she may have unwittingly created decades ago.

Not sure how to use a backchannel for teaching and learning? Hogan reveals this too--all in under 10 minutes. This is Hacking the Backchannel.
