unrelated modules...

… and Grades.

combined into one presentation.

has posted new grades since the last

time you checked your grades.

The Chat module, in contrast,

is designed for



You can only

“chat” with

people who are

logged in

at the same

time as you.

Because of this, Chat sessions should be planned in advance.

“I’ll see you in Chat on Tuesday evening at 7 PM.”

Slide12 l.jpg

When you first

enter the Chat module,

you are provided with

the transcripts ofprevious Chat sessions.

This area will likely

be empty at the start

of your course.

Slide13 l.jpg

Conversations that

take place within your

classroom are recorded.

This allows you to

view the transcripts

of chat sessions that

you’ve missed.

Slide14 l.jpg

There are separate transcripts

for each chat session that occurs.

Click “Read” to view a transcript.

Slide18 l.jpg


Now let’s enter

the Chat room!

Slide19 l.jpg

The chat software is

a “Java” program.

It has lots of

features that

you probably

will not need

Slide20 l.jpg

Whenever you are in

chat, you are in a particular

‘channel’. Think of each channel

as an individual private chatroom.

When you first enter

chat, you are placed in

a “channel” that’s

dedicated to your


Only the teacher and students

in your class can enter this

channel or view the recorded transcripts afterwards.
