Where Can I Find Free Tools for Holding Online Office Hours?

Office hours for online faculty might sound like an oxymoron, but in this Magna 20 Minute Mentor led by Barry Dahl, Ph.D., you’ll discover web-based tools you can use to connect with your students while teaching online.

Even in an e-learning environment, office hours are an important part of the educational experience.

Students need to know when, where, and how they can reach online faculty when more than just an email exchange is called for.

Learning goals

After viewing this fast-paced seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand how the “office hours” concept can work in online teaching
  • Review the free web-based tools supporting office hours for online faculty
  • Select and use web-based tools to connect with e-learning students
  • Better understand the use of new technology in online courses

Free and simple to use tools

This seminar looks at three of the best web-based tools you can use to support online teaching and connect with your students electronically, including:
