Introducing Canvas Course Scheduler – Flexible Learning Part 7

Canvas Course Scheduler is an integrated feature of Canvas, which allows you (the academic) to identify regular times (office hours or consultation times), for students to get in touch about the course, this information is integrated into the Canvas Calendar for students so they know the best time to contact you.

You may wish to have a 2 hour window for a course on a Tuesday afternoon, and generally find 15 minutes is enough to discuss most questions. Canvas Scheduler will set up the 8 meetings, and allow students to book into them (individually or in groups)

You may wish to offer students the option of Skype or Collaborate sessions for the meeting if that is more convenient for them or you.

Instructions on how to set up office hours are available from the Canvas Community page.
