ARCHIVED: In Oncourse, how can I enter a chat room and send a message?

UITS no longer supports original Oncourse. For information about Indiana University's current version of Oncourse, see What is Oncourse?

To enter a chat room and post a message in Oncourse, follow the steps below:

  1. Log into Oncourse and select the appropriate course.

  2. Click In Touch.

  3. Scroll down to the "Chat Room" heading. Enter a chat room by clicking its name.

  4. In the "Message" field, enter your message.

  5. To send a public message, click the Send button or press Enter.

    To send a private message, make sure the "Users" list is displayed in the frame on the right. (If it's not, at the bottom of the window, click the Users link. A list of users who are logged into the chat room should appear in the right-hand frame.) Click the name of a user on the list to automatically send your message to that user.
