The Chat Room tool allows you and your site participants to engage in unstructured, archived, real-time conversations, like an instant messenger.

If the Chat Tool is not present in your Sakai site, you can add it by clicking on Site Info --> Edit Tools. Select and add the Chat tool.

The Chat Room tool provides a default chat room. Clicking on the Chat Room tool takes you to this room. To add a message to the chat room, type into the text box and click the Add Message button. Anyone who is in the chat room with you or who visits the chat room later will see this message.

For more detailed instructions and information about advanced features, see the Additional Documentation at the Sakai-Training site.
