The Course Chat function is available for all groups enrolled into any one of your courses and is a powerful way to share information within a group. This allows for collaborative learning, which learners thrive on, and for common questions to be asked and answered by the facilitator or by fellow participants.
Enabling Group Chat in your workspace
By default, the group chat function is turned off. If you want to enable this in your workspace, go to Settings --> Workspace Settings, scroll all the way down and turn ON the group chat toggle.
⚠️ Groups chat is a global setting so this will turn on chat for all Groups within your workspace.
