Contact the digitisation advisors in your department
They are in regular contact with ZLE and kiz and coordinate the online teaching offers.
Even - or perhaps especially - when communicating with your students in presence is not possible, there may be important questions that you need to clarify with individual students or groups. We have compiled a list of how you can offer a consultation hour even without being present.
The coordination of dates should be well regulated. If necessary, you can make appointments for your online consultation hours using the scheduler activity in your Moodle courses.
Exchange information with students on the phone. How exactly you establish telephone contact with your students is up to you. You can have the number given to you and call at an agreed time. Alternatively, you can give out a number on which you can be reached on request to students who have arranged a consultation hour, or you can state your number and availability times in your out-of-office message.
Answer your students' questions by e-mail. For the sake of your time management, it may be useful to reserve fixed times for the questions in your daily schedule.
You can answer your students' questions and concerns via discussion forums on your courses. The advantage is that all students are informed, so you may not have to answer questions more than once. Of course, you should not discuss confidential topics here.
Naturally, synchronous exchange via a web meeting with Zoom can also be useful for a consultation hour. Tools that are available are for example a whiteboard, video/audio chat or screen sharing.
For data protection reasons, private solutions such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangout, Skype, FaceTime or similar are not recommended.
