"The world’s leading online scheduling tool, Doodle takes the pain out of finding the right date and time for a group of people to meet and makes scheduling virtually effortless. The basis service is a free online coordination tool which requires neither registration nor software installation."

Your "assignment" for the Sloan-C online workshop is to use Doodle to create an event scheduler or to create a poll. Then share it with the entire workshop by posting it to the Moodle discussion forum.
