A look at how Fanshawe (and higher education) took advantage of a social gaming platform (Discord) to build community during a time when students needed it most.

I will share my experience in building a Discord server from the ground up and managing the server through growing pains, an unexpected raid and general COVID times.

This talk will include:

  • General server set-up and organization
  • Adding and programming bots
  • Troubleshooting a raid
  • Empowering students to shape their community and to support each other
  • Why I believe Discord will be an important part of our strategy moving forward
