Texts and Chat
Text and Comments tasks provide timely information to learners, and allow learners to engage in group tasks
The text task allows a way for teachers to add a message to students in real time. Text task are defined with a little bit of content. A non editing teacher can make them visible to learners on from the dashboard at the appropriate time or or hide them when no longer relevant.
Comments tasks allow learner or teachers to post messages ordered by time that appear immediately to others after posting. This functions like a real time chat app. Multiple comments tasks can be used in a block for separate conversations or channels. Teachers can make the individual comment tasks appear or disappear when that choose to open or close a topics. All data is saved in the Moodle comment subsystem and are accessible from log reports, search, etc.
