Other places to put chat boxes

Including a chat box on the pages listed above is considered the minimum standard for visibility. However, every additional page that contains a chat box is an additional place where a student who needs help might find it. 

Chat boxes have been included with positive results in the following locations:

  • In a static sidebar that appears on every library web page
  • Throughout the library website
  • Library FAQ page
  • Course websites
  • Learning Management Systems
  • Specific assignment pages
  • Links within emails from instructors to students

Small changes in visibility can have large impacts. Each additional chat box provides students with another opportunity to find help when and where they need it.
