The tutorial showed clearly how to set-up the Chat Room, but left me unclear about a couple of aspects.
In drupal and LMS distributions such as Opigno, these kind of teacher managed facilities are already available and there is even a module for Google Hangouts - though difficult to implement. I therefore see this chat room facility as more of an informal or ad-hoc facility for students as one of their learning activities for a specific course or lesson. In this concept it is a competitor to Google Hangouts, but provided internally for a bit more privacy control and seems to be very flexible and easy to set-up by comparison, within a course or lesson. This makes it potentially a great tool for non-techies like myself, education organisations and for students alike.

1) 8 people can be in the same room at the same time.2) Anyone can set up a rom.3) The room is always available for students4) If a student has the room "key" they can join the room at any time, no need to request access.5) Yes, you can create a room with a "key" ahead of time, and ask anyone who wants to participate to join this room at a scheduled time.

Wow! That sounds far better than I anticipated.
Thanks for the clarification - it has now got me well and truly chomping at the bit :)
Setting it up within a website page (node) such as a discussion article, user group area or Opigno Lesson slide seems to be straight forward.
However, could the same content type (button) also be set up within the menu system as part of a general study aids/web tools navigation bar/block?
