Do you want an easy way to manage student signup for one-on-one meetings? Do you want to see ahead of time who is attending your office hours?
You can manage office hour signup using either Canvas Appointment Scheduler or Google Calendar. In the CLT we have found that Google Calendar Appointments Slots are best for most on-campus faculty and they can be fully integrated with Canvas easily.
The following video will walk you through the features of the Google Calendar Appointment Slots feature and show you how you can set it up for your class.
You can also setup your Google Appointment Slots as repeating events so you can easily setup office hours for the entire semester!
Here are instructions that you can supply your students on how to setup an appointment. Please modify them to fit your needs.
