How do I use the chat feature?

Updated on

The chat feature allows you to ask questions to your lecturer in a quick and accessible manner. They will add a chat feature to a Module in Content and announce when they are available to answer questions.

Use the chat feature

This is what the chat feature looks like in Content:

If you click this Topic you will go to this specific chat room. You can now ask questions to your lecturer.

  • The chat feature has limited options: You can type a text message, but nothing more. This means you cannot add attachments, images, or links.
  • The chat session will be visible in Content until 15 minutes after the last message was sent. After 15 minutes of inactivity the chat will be emptied. It will then no longer be visible for students.
