New EC Learn Feature: Scheduling Appointments in Calendar

Scheduling appointments with students and managing appointment slots for office hours can be cumbersome. Fortunately, Canvas (EC Learn) offers “Calendar 2” which has a Scheduler for this very purpose. We have turned on this version of the Calendar so that you can use the feature. And because you are adding the appointment slots to your course calendar, they will automatically show up in your syllabus!

The Scheduler is still in beta, so it may not always work perfectly (e.g. in testing it out we discovered that it can have trouble loading in Safari), but Instructure is constantly improving it, so something that was buggy one week might be fixed a couple weeks later.

If you would like to use Scheduler and learn more about the other changes to Calendar 2, you can find details and instructions here: http://guides.instructure.com/s/2204/m/4152/l/59600-how-is-the-new-calendar-different-from-the-old-calendar.
