Too many steps to communicate with the instructor. I was hoping that the chat option could replace the built in messaging of buddypress. But to chat with an instructor, the student has to:
open the chat window
search for the instructor
wait for the name to show
click invite to chat
Ideally, a "message the instructor" button would be placed on the course page that, when clicked, launched a chat window for that instructor.
The same button should be on each member's profile for the same reason.
When the chat plugin is enabled on the site with the university header, the mobile menu is not functioning.
