Set up private direct messages between students and teachers
In case a student didn't catch everything during the live lecture, they can ask for help by sending a private message to their teacher. You can also build DMs for teachers, administrative staff, or anyone else.
Create chatrooms or channels on specific courses for broader discussions
Add chat rooms to online classes where hundreds of attendees can communicate in real-time. Allow teachers and course administrators to make important announcements in dedicated channels which you can configure in any way you like.
Integrate chat with a few lines of code
You just need to tell us which conversation to display, who's chatting, and where to show it on the page. We take care of the rest! And if you want a deeper integration, we have all the APIs you'll need to add functionality or integrate into your own systems.
Tune the look and feel of your chat
You can deeply customise the chat UI with HTML and CSS. With TalkJS Themes you have complete control over the styling, the layout, and document structure of the chat messages and the possibility to show metadata.
Super cool tool. I'm currently using Intercom and I'm adding TalkJS for user to user conversations. I run an education technology startup.
Keep the entire class in the loop with email, push, and desktop notifications
Students and teachers can reply to an email notification, and the message will land back in the chat closing the loop and ensuring that the conversation is not lost. Everyone can respond directly or jump back into your platform. Either way, their response will safely reach its destination.
