Scheduler is a tool in Moodle that allows students to sign up for stipulated time slots. These could be for in-class presentations, individual meetings, or a variety of uses.

From the Gear icon, choose Turn editing on.

In the section of your course page where you want to add the Scheduler, click Add an activity or resource.

Scroll down. Click Scheduler. Click Add.

Fill in the Name field. Enter directions for the students. For Default slot duration, fill in the interval between appointments. For example, if there will be one meeting, presentation, etc. every half hour, fill in 30 minutes. Click Save and display.
