WHAT TO EXPECT
No special software is required. We offer video conferencing through Zoom, the same system the university is using across many courses. Zoom’s technology allows you to share documents or your desktop with the writing consultant while you videoconference, so that you can make changes in real time. Please have any and all materials you would like to discuss during your appointment available. Through Zoom, you can share and discuss your writing, oral presentations, etc. Additional materials for submission could include notes, a draft, an assignment prompt, and comments from the professor, as appropriate. Writing is not read in advance.
For more hands-on instruction, you and your writing consultant may also choose to use Google Docs. Please email the consultant an invitation to edit your document on Google Docs prior to your appointment time, and be online when the appointment begins.
