Student Connect: Student Guide for Appointment Booking
- Student Connect is only available in Canvas to Districts that are managing employee Zoom accounts.
- Students can reserve their own appointments.
- Only instructors can see the students' reserved appointments.
Student Connect Appointment Booking allows one-on-one appointments with an instructor or other educational provider for office hours, tutoring, counseling, and other private meeting options. The appointment slots appear and allow just one reservation for each open appointment slot. Students can reserve an available appointment; only the instructor and student know who has booked that time and for what purpose.
1. Students Reserve their Appointments
Teachers offer appointment slots. Students can reserve an open appointment slot in their Student Connect account. The student chooses the teacher they want to book the appointment with from the drop-down menu.
When students select their instructor, the instructor’s available appointments appear.
The student selects the plus icon (+) next to the appointment time they want to reserve. The opening page (shown below) is where the student enters the appointment topic and summarizes the purpose for the appointment. When the student clicks Reserve Appointment, the slot saves for that student.
The session is available for the teacher and that student only. Other students will not be able to see or enter this booked appointment. They will see that this slot is Taken and unavailable for them to reserve.
2. Student View
Students can click on the plus icon (+) to access more details about their scheduled meeting.
The student can see their scheduled appointments and other slots that are available to schedule. The join button appears when the meeting is ready to start.
3. Cancel the Appointment
- a) Students can cancel the meeting before the join button appears. Once the join button displays, they can only view details or join the meeting. Canceling the meeting is not available.
b) Before the join button appears, students have the option to select Cancel Appointment. The window opens with the cancel choices. Students can cancel the meeting or go back without making any changes.
4. Setting your reminders and updates
Go to Account Settings > Email to subscribe to get reminders for upcoming sessions, get updates of scheduling changes (such as when an appointment is reserved), and get an itinerary of the events.
5. Calendar Sync
Setting up your calendar allows you to subscribe to upcoming sessions in Student Connect. When you click on the Personal Calendar tab on the navigation bar, a Personal Calendar Integration link appears. This links to the iCalendar / ICS / WebCal feed. Paste this link into your calendar software subscription section. It's imperative to subscribe instead of performing a one-time import, as the feed of your upcoming sessions changes over time.
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.
