Using Teacher Chat, you can enable 1-on-1 text communication with your enrolled students and send announcements to the entire class during active classroom sessions. When enabled, chat can be initiated by you or by your students.
By default, Teacher Chat is disabled during classroom sessions. To enable Teacher Chat, navigate to Screens or Timeline view, then click the Enable Chat button. Chat can be enabled/disabled at any time during the session.
