My name is Leah and I lead learning, development & inclusion at Coda.
Prior to becoming a Coda maker, I would facilitate virtual workshops using a slide deck, sometimes supplementing with a google doc, and leaning very heavily on the Zoom chat. Slide decks are pretty, but not collaborative. Google docs are collaborative, but not the cutest. At the end of a session, I would have to compile everything in one place to share back, and the Zoom chat would be lost forever.
Now, I use Coda docs as my primary artifact for sharing a pre-read, leading workshops, and capturing learnings & takeaways. It’s collaborative, flexible, and beautiful. And while it does have the functionality to make fancy app-like docs, as a learning tool it is super simple to use.
