Leveraging LTI: Integrating Office Hours with Blackboard

Version 3

    Face-to-face contact between students and faculty/administrators is a key driver of student success and retention.  To that end, Princeton University has developed an application that facilitates the online scheduling of office hours and advising appointments.  WASE (Web Appointment Scheduling Engine) scheduled over 50K appointments last year.  WASE is integrated with Blackboard Learn through LTI and web services.  I will demo WASE and discuss the value of delivering this service through Blackboard Learn.
