It would be great if I could get a notification when students post in the chat.  Also, it would be nice if the chat box would allow threads, allow photo attachments and have a larger box so I can see my whole post at once.  Thanks!!

As an instructor and also as a student taking a class on Humanizing Technology, I also would love to have some type of notification that a chat has been added because sometimes I do not see them until days later when I arbitrarily open up the Chat link. 

Maybe a popup number next to the chat link like the inbox has at least to know someone has added a chat.  Or perhaps a number to show how many others in the class are online.  Some of the activities I assign include student to student interation and this would help them contact each other on the Canvas page directly. Otherwise my Chat just sits there unattended and alone.
