[TOS] IRC for a class or not

I will be teaching an Open Source Software Development class this 
spring. I usually use Piazza for class discussions and most 
communications. But for an open source course, I feel like IRC might be 
more appropriate. Except I am not sure how a bunch of college kids will 
handle IRC.

Does anybody have any experience in using IRC for a course as a single 
communication tool with students?

Any feedback would be very appreciated!
