Changing a student's display name in a chat

By Daniel - Jan 2014

One common issue we often hear from teachers is that sometimes a student might join the chat with an inappropriate display name, perhaps its something designed to provoke or other it might be that the student hasn’t used the convention that the teacher would like. In these cases the teacher should be able to make a change to the name and move on.

We have now introduced this simple feature: teachers can fully control the display names of the participants in the chat room.

To get started click on the gear icon which will bring up this dialog:

Then just update the display name to something that you approve and select the update name button. This will automatically update the name to all of the participants in the chat.

We hope this new feature helps you manage your rooms in an effective way.
