Moodle is an interesting Learning Management System. One of the tools it offers is a chat session. I don't know how it works under the hood, but the provided front-end is a weak javascript tool. Is there an IRC server hiding in there somewhere I can direct advanced users to?

Unfortuantly not, you'd need to run an IRCd for that which isn't included within Moodle. Moddle just use a PHP/JS combination to emulate a chat room.

IRCd is an apt-get install away. Has anyone tried replacing the normal chat function with a full on IRC server? – jldugger May 2 '09 at 17:03
