The chat tool allows you to interact with other users using a text-based chat. Chat is part of the virtual classroom. You can also access it separately.

Use the chat tool when real-time discussion is required. Most students are comfortable with using some form of chat.

The chat tool was designed to be ideal for low bandwidth situations, such as when your students are connecting to your course using a dial-up connection. See Blackboard IM/Bb Collaborate.
