It would be great if we can only allow chatting when teacher is on the course page. That way the teacher is always moderating it.
It would also be nice if the student could private chat with the teacher or TA. And the teacher could private chat with individual students.
@ebwstitt That's a different idea that is currently the topic of conversation at One-on-one chat function. Many teachers use the Conferences tool to schedule one-on-one chats with a student.
Thank you for the idea. But we don't have access to conferences and the big blue button, because we use WebEx. Soon we will be going hybrid with the students in the class, not on WebEx. One of the great things that came out of this bit of craziness, is that many students will ask questions in private chat when in person they are embarrassed to ask. I'm trying to find something to replace the webex chat, which has the ability for the teacher to control permissions, like who can privately chat to whom.
