Appointments (Zoom)

About Appointments

Appointments lets the instructor schedule and manage blocks of time for individual meetings with students.  

  • Instructor specifies a block of time and meeting slots
  • Students reserve slots
  • Instructor and student meet 1-on-1 in Zoom

Appointments can be used for:

  • instructor office hours
  • private support for projects or homework
  • personalized feedback

NOTE: Appointments is not enabled in courses by default.  The instructor must enable the tool in course Navigation.
( How do I manage Course Navigation links? )

See the Support Guide:

Appointment Booking – Instructor Guide
