New Feature: Add Files to Backchannel Chat

By David - Mar 2013

We have a new feature to announce: File uploads.

Now our premium users can easily share files that are related to your online discussion.

You can easily add files from:

  • Your computer
  • Dropbox
  • Google Drive
  • Picasa
  • Flickr
  • Take a picture from your webcam
  • Search the web for images

These files are then made available to all of the participants in the chat room. Participants can view or download the file by clicking on the file name, which can be found at the bottom right of the chat screen.

A teacher can insert the image files into the conversation by clicking on the insert arrow .

One of the best features is the image search, lets say your chatting about worms, everyone loves a good worm chat, with our file attach tool, you can now search the web for a great worm picture:

The teacher can then attach the picture to the discussion and really bring the chat to life!


This great feature is available across all of our premium platforms, such as Edmodo and Chalkable.
