The Chat tool is *so* sensitive to operating system service packs, browser versions, browser plug ins, and Java versions that while we have it working here on campus, you and most of your students cannot use it from home. And with the new Collaborate tool, I’m going to be honest, I’m not going to spend any time trouble shooting chat problems.
I just tested it in T207 and with whatever Windows 7 flavor we have, IE 8.0.760.17514 and Java 6 Update 38, the chat works. If you don’t have exactly that combination, you’re on your own. Sorry.
We’ll be doing workshops and training on using Collaborate and if you’re a blog reader, you’re aware we’ve already done one session in early January.
Back with more shortly!
