So ti = chi? I don't recall ever learning it [in this course], though I have probably just forgotten it.

It does but it's taught later and it shouldn't have appeared in this sentence. It's one of the acceptable sentences for people following evening classes. Apologies for it appearing here, it's been edited now.

Is there a reason why this course seems to prefer the use of chi over ti?

Yes, there is a very good reason at the beginning of the course.

With spoken Welsh 'chi' has the same form 'dych chi' in the positive, negative and question.

Whereas 'ti' is different in all forms.

Since the verb to be in Welsh is so irregular 'chi' is easier to grasp initially.
