With Etherpad you can set up a common chat room for you and/or your students.

In this, the individual participants are marked in different colours.

First you have to create a new object/tool "Etherpad" via the ILIAS page of your course.


You then have to provide this with a name and description.


When all settings have been made, you can put the pad online. This gives all course participants access to it.


The participants present can be viewed in the open chat.


The different participants can now communicate with each other using different colours.


If you want to use the same etherpad in another course as well, you can copy and paste it into new object/tool.
