Using The Chats Application

A chat is an application that allows a moderator to set up a “talk” about a specific subject. The moderator will be given a specific log in to host the Chat and answer question about the topic. Users will be able to submit questions in response to the topic. Chats are created in the Admin area of the software. A user name and password are set up for the moderator.
