There are many options to configure and host online office hours. Below is an example using Zoom:

  • Visit, click Sign In and enter HawkID and password
  • In the left-hand menu, choose Meetings
  • In the top menu, choose Personal Meeting Room
  • Near the bottom of the screen, choose Edit this Meeting
  • In the Security section, verify Waiting Room has been checked
    • Enabling the Waiting Room feature is important as it will allow re-use of the same online meeting while reducing the risk of people accidentally joining the discussion. As the meeting owner, you will need to admit each attendee from the Waiting Room
  • Near the bottom of the screen, choose Save
  • Choose the Copy Invitation link in the center of the screen

The information displayed is the content to provide people wishing to join your personal office hours. This online meeting information could be published on a syllabus, website, email or any medium appropriate for the audience.
