Instant Messenger

I would like to be able to quickly message students when they are online like how messengers are set up on Social Media platforms. It would something that would pop up on their screen like how messages work on Facebook.

 @michelle_devall , thanks for sharing this idea; it's open for voting. Canvas currently has a chat feature, but messages posted to chat will be visible to all enrolled users: 

Community Explorer

We've used outside programs like Comm100 and Zopim, but I would imagine a built-in chat feature would be beneficial for those who don't have access to those types of programs.
