Rocket.Chat is a team chat platform, much like Slack, to facilitate real-time collaboration. It is highly configurable and interoperable with other platforms through APIs and integrations. Unlike Slack, it can be self-hosted on your own server. It can be accessed on a web browser or through apps for all major operating systems.
Ethical EdTech uses a Rocket.Chat instance at chat.ethicaledtech.info.
