What happens in the office hour is the same virtually as it is for students who show up in person: Students ask questions about particular problems or topics, and the professor works through them as if he were in front of the class. Shifting to the online whiteboard gives him a “virtual extension” of his office, he says.  Stoll has offered online office hours for years, and he says it started out of necessity. “It was hard to find time slots during the week when students are available,” he explains. “Undergrads have very diverse schedules, especially in general-ed courses.”
