Who's online display box

Online learning can be isolating for students.  Seeing who's "in the room" with them when they are in their courses in Canvas would be a great way to help students feel more connected and build community.  In Canvas there is a Chat feature that can be enabled that at the top shows who's online in the course at the moment.  I would like the option, via Design Tools, to place a Who's Online box on the home page of a course so students can see who is learning with them at the moment, then from that box click into a chat or view the person's profile.
