Jim Olsen's Office Hours Fall 2022 ~ MG 478/Zoom

You may meet with me in person (in MG 478) or via Zoom. The Zoom link will be provided in WesternOnline or you may call Dr. Olsen to get the link.

To meet with me via Zoom, start the process by calling my office and then we will both get on Zoom together.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 11:00 am - 12:00 noon and 2:45-3:15 pm or email or call for an appointment.

Email: JR-Olsen@wiu.edu
Morgan Hall 478 Office Phone: 309-298-2315.

Zoom Notes:

  • You will need a Zoom account. Go to to https://zoom.us/ to create an account, if you don't have one yet.
  • You will start in a "waiting room." Dr. Olsen will let you in (or otherwise communicate with you).
  • If you sit in the waiting room for more than 2 minutes with no response from Dr. Olsen, please call.

I've found that appointments are easy to set up in person, so, to set up an appointment please see me before or after class, or call me, so we can set up a time that works for both of us. I've found it can be cumbersome to set up appointments via e-mail (in person is better).
