The Writing Lab, Capen 128:
The online function is really neat! It allows me to utilize this service while I am abroad.
Online appointments are available Monday - Friday through The Writing Lab during the fall and spring semester.
During Winter and Summer sessions, and on Sundays during Fall and Spring, online appointments are available through the Main Center in Baldy 209.
Weekdays, you can schedule an online appointment by finding Online - PhD on the schedule. Select an available time, fill out the form and your appointment will be saved.
On Sundays, PhD consultants are open for online consultations in the main center. When making an appointment, you will see a "Meet Online?" option on the appointment form. Select the "Yes - Schedule Online Appointment" option to create 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 red "Start or join online consultation" link in the appointment window to open the online meeting.
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 645-0785.
