During an online consultation, you and your tutor will discuss your writing project via the Writing Center's free web-based Adobe Connect software. This allows you to communicate privately in real time via your computer’s audio. You’ll also be able to use screensharing, a feature that allows you and your tutor to make changes to your paper at the same time. During the consultation, the tutor will take some notes about what you discuss, which will be e-mailed to you after you wrap up.
There are a few things you need to attend an online consultation.
A computer with an internet connection
Any assignment specific information (assignment guidelines, a draft of your paper, etc.)
An audio connection - This can be via the phone or through a headset with microphone attached.
