About Chat:
Chat is a live tool, meaning everyone involved in the chat must be logged into the chat area at the same time in order to participate. There are a total of 6 rooms in the chat area. Typically your instructor will indicate which chat room and at what time the chat will take place.

Accessing a Chat Room :
Log into your WebCT course and go to WebCT Chat (usually it is located in the course section for Communication tools)

Click on Chat to enter.

By default the top 4 chat rooms are named "Room "1 through "Room 4", but some instructors will alter the room title as you see in the following image for the chat room called "Junk".

To enter a room, click on the room title.

All students currently logged into the chat room will appear in the area on the right (Users Logged On). Chat messages will show in the large box on the right (Output Interaction Box). Message text you type will go into the small textbox on the bottom (Enter your message below).

Entering a chat message:
Click and type your message (or cut a paste message already written in a word application) into the text box area at the bottom of the chat screen, then click the "return" or "enter" key on your keyboard to send it to the chat box.
