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:
- Log into Oncourse and select the appropriate course.
- Scroll down to the "Chat Room" heading. Enter a chat room by clicking
- In the "Message" field, enter your message.
- To send a public message, click the
Sendbutton or press
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
Userslink. 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.
