The Scheduler activity is an efficient way to create a schedule of specified time slots for meetings, appointments, or student presentations. Students then choose a time slot. Each time slot can be set to accommodate one or several students, and it is possible to schedule appointments for entire groups at the same time. Instructors can also select a time slot for students. The scheduler also allows you to record the outcome of the meeting - and optionally a grade - within the scheduler.
Name: Enter a name for the scheduler.
Introduction: Type any instructions about the sign- up sheet and/or the activity in the Instructions box.
Mode: Set the number of appointments you want each student to be able to make (either for the whole Scheduler or at a time).
Booking in Groups: If set to Yes students can book a slot for all members of their group.
Guard time: Optional. If enabled, prevents students from changing or selecting appointments a certain amount of time before the appointment. For example, if the Guard time is 2 hours, students cannot cancel their appointment if it is less than two hours away. Also students wouldn't be able to book an appointment less than two hours away.
