What's the simplest way for students to sign up for your office hours?
Are you looking for a free and simple way for students to sign up to meet with you during your office hours? We recommend Calendly! This free service gives students the opportunity to find a time that works for them to meet with you during your scheduled office hours. The system automatically notifies both you and the student when he/she has signed up, and the notice goes straight to your Outlook calendar (faculty) and my.wheaton account (students.) This is a great way for students to sign up for a time without having to trek over to your office to check a list on your door. It also electronically notifies both parties in the event of a cancellation or schedule change. Student Government representatives respectfully encourage faculty to consider using this automated tool.
“I find it so much better than going back and forth with email or a sign-up sheet on my door. Students can easily see when I am available,” commented Dr. Terry Huttenlock. Sophomore Allie Lovell says, “Using Calendly to schedule office hours with my professor is so simple! Calendly is well-organized and straightforward to use. I especially appreciate how it sends me email reminders about meetings I have coming up.”
