Effective Online Office Hours in the Mathematical Sciences

In this paper, we describe our introduction of anonymous online office hour sessions for mathematics courses and outline a number of ways in which these sessions are more effective than traditional office hours.  Our study is based on our experience with conducting the sessions as well as on data from student surveys.  Our sessions make use of the enVision communication software (freeware), which permits easy, real-time communication of complex mathematical ideas.
