Online (Real-time Video Chat)


What YOU do:

  • Make an appointment indicating you want an Online Video Chat session.

  • If you have a draft for us to review together, it's best for you to attach it and the assignment instructions before your appointment.

  • At the scheduled time of your appointment, log back on to the Writing Center website and click on your appointment.

  • In the appointment window that opens, click the red link that says, “Start or Join Online Consultation.” Another window will open where your video chat will begin.

  • Review the directions that appear on the whiteboard area.

  • In the upper right hand corner, there will be a person with a number next to it. When it says two, both you and the consultant are viewing the video chat.

  • Click Start Video/Audio Chat in the lower righthand corner to begin your video session, or use the chat feature to get help from the consultant.


  • The consultant will copy and paste your assignment instructions and draft onto the whiteboard.

What WE do:

  • Add your draft to the chat/ video chat whiteboard.

  • Offer feedback, similar to a face-to-face session so you can make changes to the draft you both can see on the screen.

Online (or video chat) appointments have the advantage of real-time dialogue.

To use this option...

  • Choose “Schedule eTutoring appointment” from the “Meet Online?” drop-down menu when you make your appointment in our online scheduler. When you have successfully scheduled yourself for this kind of appointment, the appointment will appear in red on the calendar. (A face-to-face appointment appears in bright gold, and an eTutoring YouTube recording appointment appears in olive green.)SchOnline.png
  • Please attach a copy of your draft and assignment to the appointment so the consultant can paste it to the whiteboard and your changes are more easily seen in a different color on the screen.

You can make an online appointment during our regular business hours, but special arrangements for additional times to meet could be made by contacting the Writing Center.
