One feature staff have asked for in the past is the ability to have students sign up to a set of timeslots, such as office hours or small group tutorials.  In Blackboard 9 this is now possible with the new group set feature.  This means you can set up a series of timeslots, and students can only sign up to one of them.  Unfortunately students are not able to change their minds and sign up to a different timeslot without tutor intervention.  Read instructions on how to set up spaces for students to sign-up.

The ‘Did you know?’ series explores possibilities in e-learning that you may not be aware of.  See other articles from the series.
