About Chat The Chat tool is a real-time, text-based collaboration tool. You can use the Chat tool to brainstorm ideas, hold a question and answer period, have a debate or discussion, or organize a remote study group.
As opposed to other collaboration tools, such as Discussions, Chat conversations occur in real-time. You can set up course specific chat rooms or chat rooms that involve individuals chwt all over the organization.
General chats allow you to incorporate chat discussions into the teaching of a course since they are automatically open to all chats enrolled in the course. Personal chats are ideal for keeping in touch with friends and colleagues or for clubs and other groups whose members do not share a single org unit. Access the Chat tool Chat rooms are grouped as General course chats or Personal chats.
You can only access General chats from the appropriate course. You can access Personal chats from anywhere in Learning Environment.
