The default time that seems to be suggested for evening OU Live tutorials seems to be 7pm but I have the impression many students would prefer later times. For example, last week, I had a student saying she could listen and type but not speak as she was eating. Another student was interrupted by her young child.
It is impossible to please all students and cater for each person's circumstances. However, when I have autonomy to suggest times to students, I tend to find that 9 pm is the most popular time.
Does anyone have thoughts?
