Hi Lars,

This is part of the new bridge task features.  Lots of new features are 
available based on slots but the interface has been customized for one 
particular intro computer science class here at MSU.  Guy and Gerd plan 
on generalizing bridge tasks for other purposes for the next major release.

Guy can explain slots better, but basically they are time slots that you 
can define and assign to a problem or allow a student to request.  For 
example, for use during proctored lab time.  I don't understand it all 
myself and I'm probably explaining it wrong it is so new!  As Gerd likes 
to say this feature is "bleeding edge."
