Google Calendar (free) offers a wonderful feature for teachers: The ability to set up “appointment slots” which other people can click on to schedule a meeting at an available time. This is ideal for scheduling parent-teacher conferences or other meetings in which individuals in a group need to specify a time that works with their schedule to meet with you. In this five minute screencast, I explain how to setup and use Google Calendar appointment slots. Refer to the Google Calendar support page, “Using Appointment slots,” for more information about this powerful technique for scheduling meetings.
If you need to schedule a meeting with folks who are not all users of your organization’s calendar system, my favorite free tool to use is WhenIsGood.net.
