This moodle block creates a chat interface for students and teachers to connect. It also provides a help desk chat interface for students to ask questions of the teachers/admins who are assigned as helpers and currently logged in. It also has plugins for multiple sharing tools that can be enabled.
This block provides a Welcome Area for Moodle courses that is unique by instructor instead of by course. This is useful for displaying information that is repeated by a teacher across a number of courses.
