We invite you to share in the collaboration and wisdom-sharing of the OER community. Slack is a free, easy-to-use tool for communication and collaboration. It offers channels for group conversations on specific topics, including Science-Natural and Chemistry.

You can also send direct messages to individuals or groups. Use it from any computer or mobile device.
