email or perhaps inbox ping in canvas when there are new messages in the canvas chat feature
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.
I so agree dwahlberg! If the chat were more functional, I can see it being utilized much more. I think the popup number is a great idea!
Agree that this is also helpful for instructors managing two courses.
