Texting while in DuoLingo

Is there a way to turn of the messaging so my students cannot send messages to one another? They are spending more messages sending messages then practing their language.

I would like to know that too! I have another account dedicated for teaching during class, but I've seen them go back and forth in class, but when I go to call them out, they have already deleted the messages!

If you go to your Dashboard you should see "privacy settings" in the upper right corner of the screen. When you click on it you can adjust things like whether or not your students can use their activity streams or the discussion section. The options apply to all of your students, you can't just block a few from not using it, but you can give that a try if it sounds like it would meet your needs.

As the other comments said, you can disable your students' activity streams. Instructions (or go to the Schools FAQ page and look under "privacy")
