How can i start a group conversations with my classmates without the instructor in the chat
The short answer is you can't in Canvas. If you want to do have a study session where the Instuctor can't view it then you would need to set it up outside of Canvas. Slack is a free product that works pretty well. Or maybe Google hangouts or FB?
Hi there, Sabrina Montes...
Here are two Guides to help you as it relates to the Chat tool:
How do I use Chat as a student?
How do I use inline chat as a student?
Would that work for your needs?
I found this while looking for synchronous tools for an online icebreaker activity. Would it work to use the chat feature in the conference tool? This assumes that students have permissions to start conferences and that the conference tool has a chat feature (ours does).
