Reply To: Fostering Connections with Virtual Students

Melanie, one thing I’ve tried to do recently is to make it even easier for of all my students, perhaps most intentionally the asynchronous students, to contact me to schedule meetings so that we can engage in meaningful conversations outside of the classroom. A tool I find useful is Calendly, which I’m able to use to integrate my online calendar and my zoom account so that students can click a link, see my schedule openings (in a preset range and schedule a short meeting with me. One click and we have an automatic meeting scheduled in our calendars, with remidner emails 🙂

Not only is it convenient, but it saves a lot of time trying to find the time to meet together. Effcicient!
