The Sign-Up tool allows students to sign up for office hours, meetings, review sessions and other events in one convenient place online. This tool can also be used in project sites to create meetings for the participants.
Various scheduling, participation, recurrence, and notification arrangements can be made. An instructor can assign participants to time slots or allow them to select their own choices. If a time slot is full, the instructor can allow participants to add themselves to a wait list, which automatically promotes a participant when a slot becomes available and sends an email notification. The Sign-up tool is group- and section-aware which gives instructors the ability to set up office hours or meetings which are visible only to their sections or to a group.
In course sites, the instructors have permission to create meetings and students are allowed to sign up for them. Instructors can permit students in any of the courses they teach to sign up for a meeting. In project sites, the maintainer (i.e. site owner) can create meetings and everyone can sign up for them.
To access this tool, select Sign-Up from the Tool Menu in the site.
