    Hi Andy,

    I’m in a soon to be forming pod of 5 people and am wondering how to do a small group chat. Is there a way in this platform to do that? I think you mentioned it in the Webinar, but it kind of went over my head. Perhaps if you could write the answer down in steps? If it is possible that is.

    Thanks!

    One way I know of is via the Rt Hand Bottom Corner Chatbox. When opened/expanded, under the blue header Who’s online there is a Comic Dialogue bubble icon. Click on it for Chatrooms.

    I also remember running into a Place called The Lodge when I was first exploring the site. No idea how to get back there.
    >>Okay when all else fails, go to search bar.
    Yaay – I found it. The Lodge (aka group chatting) has its own landing page. Its not just via the chatbox.

    I wonder if there is a Video Chatting option?
    Last year I was part of a Google+ video hang-out mastermind group. That was great to see everyone and chat in real time with a facilitator leading the discussion. I wonder if video chatting is part of the ECourse Platform somehow. Maybe!?!

    I’m sure Bradley or Andy will chime in and give you more concrete answers! (I know they take Sundays off, they’ve earned it!)

    Small groups are a great idea! Great question Akasha!

    Hey everyone – Good question..

    We removed the Lodge feature for the moment, because we felt it was a bit too much.. We can bring it back if wanted through..

    For now, we recommend just using Skype or Google Hangouts to have your buddle huddles..

    We will consider the best approach moving forward.

    Open to your feedback ๐Ÿ™‚

    skype sounds good to me fellow podsters ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    google hangouts i’m not much experienced… sometimes skype connections suck and is taking too much computer energy… i often use ooVoo – just like skype- easydownload andfor free and better connection often.

    I’m open.

    Do you all want the Lodge?

    Trying to find that perfect balance of easy/simplicity and power with our platform..

    You can access via the link that Bee posted above, and if you find it useful I am happy to make it accessible via the navigation menu again.. Let me know ๐Ÿ˜‰
