instant messenger

Post by Graeme59 »

Hi,
If I enable the 'Show Instant Messenger' option in the Display mode options section of the course set up and select students. Where do I see who is currently online to message them?
Cheers
Graeme

Beware of instant messenger, as the server fires http packets to all connected users: the number of users online can crash the server (depending on its available resources).

Hi
Thanks, worth knowing, not sure if I will use it, but interested to test it (I have spare server resource).
In which area do the online course participants appear?
Cheers
Graeme

It seems the link is broken. You should open instant messenger clicking on the preview bar in a course, then on the number of online users.
If you need a fix for that, contact me privately.
