How do I enable chat (or direct messaging)?
OpenLearning's chat function allows you to contact your classmates and facilitators directly as opposed to leaving a comment.
The option to message others will not appear on their profile page if they have chat disabled. If you have not been receiving messages, you might want to check your settings to see if you have enabled the chat function.
To do this:
Click on your profile picture in the top right corner and choose Account Settings
Scroll down to "chat"
If chat is disabled, click on change
Choose "I want chat enabled" in order to allow others to send messages to you. Don't forget to Save!
