Is there a way to block the inbox so students cannot chat with each other?
I am going to use Kona Jones' answer from this question:
"if you are using the free version, then no, I can't think of any way to prevent students from being able to message each other through the Canvas Inbox. This option is available in the paid version, but it's not on a course-by-course basis, it's controlled at the admin level - which you would be missing by using the free version. "
Shannon, Robbie has given you a great response. If you think your school might be interested in preventing students from messaging one other across all courses, please contact the local Canvas admin for guidance.
