Creating and managing a general (course) chat room

General chats exist within specific org units and are only accessible from the org unit in which they are created.

Before creating a general chat, make sure to access the Chat tool from the appropriate org unit homepage. For example, if you want to add a chat to a course offering, click the Chat link from that course's navigation bar.

All users in the org unit have access to the general chat. You can create multiple chats for the same org unit, such as "Midterm Review" and "Final Review."
