Doodle is an online scheduling tool that can be used quickly and easily to find a date and time to meet with multiple people.
BEST PRACTICE: If you want to schedule a synchronous meeting with a group of students, the instructor can create a polling calendar by scheduling an event and proposing days and times. The instructor can then put a check mark in the boxes under the days and times that work for them, and the instructor can pick the "ideal" day and time and/or assign students to different groups for separate meetings, based on their availability.
