Is there a link I can send my students to with instructions on how they access my office hours through ConferZoom?
Hi Sandra, ConferZoom is funded through the Chancellor's Office (I believe) and it looks like they added some help articles a few months ago. One specifically mentions student's booking appointments and, from my experience, it looks spot on. The folks as the CCC tech center are extremely helpful to those in the California Community College system. There are many more ConferZoom help articles but there's also a student-specific ConferZoom section.
Hello Sandra Moore...
Can you please provide some more detail on your question? Are you using Zoom in conjunction with Canvas? If so, you could just create a page in your course or you could post an announcement in your course which includes your office hours. I guess I'm not real clear on what you are asking...so if you could provide some additional details, that would be helpful...thanks!
Thank you for responding to my question. I'm setting up my office hours through Canvas Zoom for one of my Online classes. I wanted to provide students with a hyperlink to some basis instructions on how they would use ConferZoom to access my virtual office hours.

Hi Sandra Moore...
I had to do a search for ConferZoom because I wasn't familiar with that product. I've used a product called Zoom for online conference calls, but that seems to be different than what you are using? Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to help answer your question because I've never used ConferZoom before. Have you tried reaching out to the Support folks at ConferZoom? They might have some documentation already written for that product that would meet your needs. Hope this helps, Sandra.
Thanks for trying!
We also have ConferZoom available through our Canvas shell for online student office hours. I have not had a problem setting up the office hours from the instructor end, but I have had a number of students who report they cannot figure out how to sign up for one of the time slots that I have offered. Is there a set of step-by-step instructions or a Canvas Video for how students should use ConferZoom? I could not find one and would prefer to not have to make my own for this product that is offered through Canvas and presumably many others are using as well.
K Allison Meezan, I was not heretofore familiar with "ConferZoom." However, according to the help resources Chris provided in the thread,
ConferZoom is a service for the administrators, staff and faculty of the California Community colleges system.ConferZoom is funded by a grant from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office.
Have you checked with the consortium to see if they have created custom documentation for the Canvas Community Colleges around the use of this feature in Canvas?
