Is wrangling a time to chat or meet with a student fraught with a lot of annoying back-and-forth emails and messages? Wish there was simpler way for this to happen? Enter:
Tungle.me ScheduleOnce.com. UPDATE: we had previously recommended Tungle.me as the scheduler of choice but, alas, they have ceased to exist. A quick Google search for online schedule applications will find a number of alternatives to choose from, but ScheduleOnce.com has the most characteristics that are similar to Tungle.me.
ScheduleOnce is a free web-based scheduling program that allows you to setup a weekly template of your availability, and then set daily blocks by whatever interval you wish (15 minutes, 1hour, etc.). You setup your weekly/daily availability, then students select their desired block of time to meet with you. Then ScheduelOnce notifies you by email that someone wants that time. You can even sync your Outlook calendar to it. Blimey! There’s even a widget you can use in your Moodle course!!
