The scheduler activity allows lecturers to specify time slots for meetings, which students then choose on Moodle. Staff can in turn record that the student attended, make notes about the meeting – and optionally assign a grade – within the scheduler. The scheduler sends reminders to both students and staff and allows either to cancel the appointment and book another time. The scheduler also supports group meeting, where multiple students can sign up at one time. It also allows staff to assign students to attend a meeting at a particular time. Please note, it is not integrated with your Roehampton Microsoft calendar, you will need to add to this separately if required.
For online meetings you may prefer to use Bookings that create slots directly into yours and your students university calendar (not in the Moodle calendar) and create online Teams links as part of the set up (not currently available for VL staff). Bookings does not allow multiple students to join a slot. Alternatively, it’s possible to share a link to an online Teams room via the Scheduler for students to access but ensure you that students are sent to the Teams lobby so students cannot access the room early while you are still talking to another student.
If you have a specific question about the tool please contact the eLearning Services team.
