<img valign="middle" src="<?php echo $CFG->wwwroot?>/mod/dialogue/icon.gif">&nbsp;<b>Dialogues</b></p>
<p>This module provides a simple communication method between pairs of users.
A teacher can open an dialogue with a student, a student can open
a dialogue with a teacher, and (optionally) a student can open a
dialogue with another student. A teacher or student can be involved
in many on-going dialogues at any time.</p>
<p>A dialogue can have an unlimited number of entries, normally the
&quot;conversation&quot; takes place as a set of interleaved
replies. This format is not enforced and either party can add to the
dialogue at any time.</p>
<p>A dialogue can be closed by either party at any time. Closed dialogues
cannot be reopened. However, a closed
dialogue can be viewed by either party provided it is still in existence... </p>
<p>...The module deletes closed dialogues and all their entries after a
certain time. That time is set here when the Dialogue is created.</p>
<p>If the course has groups the following points apply.
<ul><li>When opening a new dialogue the teacher is shown the group mode of the
dialogue and their current group. This information is displayed immediately
below the Tab Bar.</li>
<li>A teacher can start dialogues with all the students in their current group
by choosing the group name in the drop-down list of names. Once started
the dialogues operate in the normal way, that is, they are one-to-one
dialogues between the teacher and individual students.</li>
<li>If the dialogue is in SEPARATE GROUPS mode then students only see other
students in their own group (assuming the dialogue allows student-to-student
dialogues). In this mode students who are not in any group do not see any
other students.</li>
