Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Using chat for virtual office hours or student group meetings, part of Moodle 2.8 Essential Training.
- Whether you teach face-to-face,…hybrid, or online classes,…you can use the online environment…to hold virtual office hours.…There are tools you can use outside of Moodle…of course, such as Skype…or Google Plus Hangouts.…But you may want to use a Moodle tool,…like chat.…To get started with the chat tool,…first we have to turn editing on.…I'll use the button in the top right corner to do that.…Next, if I'm gonna make virtual office hours,…I want them where students can see it…front and center.…I'll put them in the Course Information Section.…Scroll down,…and select Add an Activity or Resource…in the bottom right corner.…
From the Activities Menu, I'll select Chat,…and then add the Add Button…at the bottom of the screen.…The name of this chat will be Virtual Office Hours.…You can call yours whatever you like.…Then you can type a short description.…Next, we'll decide when the chat room is open,…if it repeats,…and details about saving the chat sessions.…So I'll expand the Chat Sessions category…so we can do that.…First, we'll set a date and time for the chat.…
