I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on synchronous chat LTIs for Canvas? Any suggestions would be welcome, thanks!
Canvas has inbuilt inbox function for messaging. This allows to interact with the users in the course.
If you mean a third party app to integrate with Canvas as LTI, Canvas allows that too.
I suggest you to talk to the support staff or Canvas Admin who can install the app and integrate with Canvas.
Hope this helps
A related question: Canvas' built-in Chat is fully transparent to everyone in a course, right? So the benefit of a third-party chat-LTI could be that you could have one-to-one exchanges (as in Slack with direct message versus channel streams)?
Canvas inbuilt messaging can be done to single student from a teacher where you can also restrict communication among students; teachers not being involved.
