I am new to Moodle, and am impressed with it. I am hoping to be able to use it at our Secondary School as our VLE.
At the moment the chat module seems a bit simplistic. It will be important for our Teachers to be able to moderate chat sessions, in much the same way as keeping discipline in real classrooms. I have tested it with my colleague and cannot find any way to mute, or kick unruly students. It is possible for one student to spam the page simply pressing one letter and enter repeatedly, making the chat session very difficult to read.
Are there any plans to introduce these sorts of controls? Or if they already exist can someone point me towards them.
I can understand that they may not be as necessary in and adult education situation, but I am certain that a minority of our students would exploit any lack of controls.
