Chat in class

In classroom session, students can access a chat to communicate with the entire class or their assigned huddle.

However, the teacher must enable student chat privileges to allow them to use either the public chat or private huddle chat. In case a student's chat option is disabled, the teacher still has the ability to send messages to both the public or individual huddle chats.

  1. Press  at the top-right of the screen.
  2. In the pop-up window, locate the Public Chat or Huddle you wish to enable for chatting. 
    • To view privileges for huddles, open the huddles list.
