AoPS Schoolhouse

AoPS Schoolhouse is the system used for MathJams and online school. The main instructor (also a classroom admin) is responsible for posting the learning materials, while other classroom assistants serve as backup if the instructor is not present or answer questions posted by students. For example, in The World’s Largest Countdown Round, there were 17 classroom assistants.

Posting

If the chatroom is moderated, which is always the case during MathJams and usually the case during class, when students type things into the chatroom, the message is goes to the instructors. From there, the instructors have the choice of sharing the question with the class, whispering an answer back, or doing nothing. Your post will show up in the classroom in a green color if it is chosen. Other people's chosen posts will show up in a blue color. If you get a reply back in a whisper, it will show up in a pink or purple color. If a moderator feels a question requires further discussion, they will open a mini window with you to more deeply discuss the question.

Character Limit

The character limit for posts in the AoPS Schoolhouse is 400 characters. You can split your posts into two to bypass this limit. There is no limit for the number of posts you can send. However, you could get a warning for posting spam messages. (You can't post the same thing twice in a row.) You could also get a warning if you post messages too fast.
