- Here is the quick step version of how to do that. You will need to create a private channel for every student or group of students that you want to chat with. You could create one for each student OR if it doesn't need to be private you could create one for each team.
- Starting the message with "@" and their name will alert them that they have a new message.
- There can be as many people as you want in a private channel. So, you could create a private channel with you and a fellow teacher or tutor to allow multiple people to chat with the student.
Here's a quick video showing me creating a private channel for our fake student "testing.testing". "testing" is in my robotics team and I create a private channel for him, send him a message, and he replies.
