Online Appointments

The online function is really neat! It allows me to utilize this service while I am abroad.

About online appointments

Online appoints are scheduled and conducted through WCOnline. When it's time for you appointment, login to WCOnline and click "Start or join online appointment."


All consultants in the Main Center are currently available for online appontments.

Making an Online Appointment

When you make your appointment, you have the option to select either online or face-to-face.  You can also go in and change your appointment to online after it has been scheduled.  


Accessing the Appointment

Both you and the consultant open the appointment a few minutes before it is time to meet. At the time of your meeting, click your appointment time. A pop-up window will show the details of your appointment. Click on the green "Start or join online consultation" link in the appointment window to open the online meeting.

During the Appointment

You can upload a paper into the document-sharing area either prior to or during the online meeting. Both you and the consultant can chat and comment on the text in the document-sharing area. You can both choose to share "real time chat updates" with each other—you will each see each other’s text as you type. You can also activate audio/video settings so that you can see and hear each other as you discuss the paper.

After your online meeting, you can reenter the online session to "play back" from the beginning of the session to see text as it was entered through the session.  Should you have troubles, you can reach consultants in the Lab at 645-5139.
