Learn@Illinois Moodle - Scheduler Activity

The scheduler activity is a tool that can be used for scheduling appointments with students or groups of students. Grades can be assigned within the tool, reminders to sign up can be sent to students, and notifications can be automatically sent at a designated time prior to students' appointment.

Examples of Using Scheduler Activity

  • Schedule 1-on-1 meetings with students about papers or projects
  • Require students to sign up for presentation slots during specific class periods (in groups or individually)
  • Schedule virtual office hours in online courses (or in-person office hours in face-to-face courses)
  • Schedule private speaking exam slots for one or several students, and give them a grade within the activity

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I enable group sign-ups?
    On the "Settings" page, under "Options" you can set the "Booking in groups" option to select a grouping.
  2. Why do so many people show up in the "Teacher" drop-down menu?
    Anyone with the role "Teacher", "Course Administrator", or "Non-editing teacher" shows up in this menu, enabling you to set up appointments with any potential instructor in your class.
  3. What is the difference between "Send invitation" and "Send reminder"?
    Clicking "Send invitation" will include all students, while "Send reminder" only includes students who have not yet signed up.

Groups and Groupings

  • Using groups with the Scheduler Activity should typically be avoided, as this requires teachers to be placed in groups with the students they are intending to meet with.
  • See our Groups and Groupings page for more information.
