Level of difficulty

Teams and classes can use Mattermost to communicate easily with one another and share files in one place. The interface and the functionality are similar to Slack. The video conferencing service Zoom is directly integrated into the chat and can be activated with the touch of a button. You can use Mattermost via a web browser, a desktop app or a mobile app.

ZHdK staff and students can log in for the chat using their ZHdK login.
