Individual meetings with students

Hi:

I am teaching a course virtually and using zoom. I want to set up a way for students to individually meet with me before class should they wish to, like individual office hours online.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Cyndy

Hello, it is common for instructors to use their Zoom Personal Meeting ID or PMI for Virtual Office Hours. PMI is a static meeting ID that is always accessible but you can also schedule it and invite your students by a Calendar invitation. It is perfect for Virtual Office Hours or to meet with the same individuals on a regular basis. It can also be password protected as well.

Many would use the waiting room feature to move students in and out of the session as they chat with the instructor one by one.
