In your Canvas course, use Student Connect (a stand alone tool) or Appointment Booking (found in ConferZoom) to reserve a 1:1 appointment when your instructor offers slots. Students will only be able to see if an appointment is available or is booked; you cannot see who booked other appointments or join any other persons’ sessions.
Reminders and Update Settings
Go to Account Settings > Email and subscribe to receive reminders for upcoming sessions, scheduling change updates, and an itinerary of events.
Set up your personal calendar to subscribe to upcoming sessions in Student Connect. Go to ‘Account Settings > Personal Calendar’ to get the calendar link to enter into your calendar.
Supported calendar applications include Apple iPad / iPhone Calendar, Evolution, Google Calendar, One Calendar for Windows 10 (Account type: WebCal), Mozilla Thunderbird (with Lightning), Outlook for Windows (Home -> Add Calendar > From Internet), Outlook.com, Zoho Calendar, and any other application which has subscription support for iCalendar / ICS / WebCal.
Please note several applications claim to have support, but they do not work, such as AOL Calendar, KOrganizer, and Yahoo! Mail.
When you click on the "Personal Calendar" tab on the navigation bar, you will be presented with a link to a personal iCalendar / ICS / WebCal feed. Paste this link into your calendar software subscription section. It is important to subscribe instead of performing a one-time import, as the feed of your upcoming sessions changes over time.
Reserving an Appointment
Once the instructor has made the appointments available, the student can reserve an available
date and time; use the calendar scroll to view future dates. The instructor can also reserve an available appointment on behalf of the student.
