A Chat is a discussion between two or more people that happens in real-time (as opposed to discussions
, which do not happen in real-time). In practice this means that the users attending a common chat session all need to be online at the same time. The chat tool
is one of the tools available in the system, and it provides the possibility to chat with other users.
