The Chat Box- The student places the mouse in this box and clicks. The flashing insertion point will appear and the student can type messages to the tutor. After typing, the student clicks the send chat button and the information appears in the dialog box. The dialog box is a record of the conversation between the tutor and student. The scroll bar on the left of the dialog box allows the student to review the conversation. The users can start a new board if they run out of room or move on to a different topic. We will practice using the whiteboard tools during the tutorial.
