I want my students to sign up for group presentation time slots. There are just 5 options but I don't want more than 3 people to sign up for each.
I want my students to sign up for office hours. I want to set up 15 minute time slots with 5 minutes of buffer any Tuesday or Thursday afternoon all semester.
I want to ask several open and closed-ended questions about the course as mid-term feedback. I would like students to be able to respond anonymously, but to receive a grade for completing the survey.
I want students to be split into discussion groups. I want each person in the group to choose a different discussion topic. I don't want more than one person in the same group to have the same topic.
I want my students to self-select a project group based on topics of interest.
