How I Use It
I use it to connect with other Computer Science students in my university, where I am able to communicate with and find people with similar interests to me. I can also use it for help when I don't understand something and often students compile useful information to study and post it on Discord.
Overall while Discord is not primarily a teaching tool, it still does well to organize and connect students and create a large database where they can help each other and share information about the class. It also serves as a convenient tool for students to stay updated on the class and future students to look back and see what the class is like. Classes feel more like a community when using Discord and is much more comforting knowing there is a safe, convenient place for a student to find others like them.
