How do I add contacts, join groups, and chat with people on the site?

How do I add a contact?

Add contacts to build your learning network. The far right margin of your account displays the chat panel. (If this is closed, it can be opened by clicking the chat icon in the upper right-hand corner.) In the chat panel, click on the contacts icon. This will navigate you to the contacts page. To search for a contact and add them to your learning network, click in the search field in the upper right-hand corner, begin typing their name, and click on the add contact button below their name in the search results. You have now added the contact to your network!

 

How do I create and join groups?

From the Contacts page, click on the “Groups” tab. Select either “Join Group” or “Create a Group.” To join an existing group, enter the Group Code and click "Join." To create a new group, enter the name of your group, add members to your group, and click "Create." You can also share the Group Code with your network. You can retrieve the Group Code at any time from the drop-down menu to the right of the group’s name.

 

How do I chat with my contacts?

To chat with a contact, locate your chat panel to the right of your screen. If the chat panel is not open or available, a chat icon should appear in the upper right hand corner of your screen alongside your search and notifications icons. Click on the chat icon to open the chat panel. If a contact is available to chat, they will show up here. Select the desired contact to begin chatting. Once you initiate a chat the recipient will be notified by an indicator on their chat icon.
