I am using Canvas as the platform for my online courses. However, I have used Moodle for years in my brick & mortar classes to create a blended environment. Moodle has the capability for a back channel discussion built into the LMS called "Chat." This is different than what Canvas calls a "discussion" in that it is built for a live online discussion.
My question is: Does Canvas have this ability or feature? Has anyone found a successful alternative?
I know I can embed a Today's Meet into a page, but I like that Moodle already had student names associated with comments submitted so I could hold them responsible.
