Video Conference

The Writing & Communication Center uses Zoom for video conferences with students who can't come to campus, but want some "real-time" interaction.

To make an appointment, please use our online scheduling system to find an appointment slot. As you make the appointment, select Video Conference in the Appointment Type box, then write "Video Conference" and your email address in the text box.

Downloading and using Zoom

Shortly before the conference is scheduled to start, we’ll send you an invitation through email. Once you’ve received the email, click the link to join the conference.  Your browser should open to the Zoom site and the application should automatically start downloading and installing. If it doesn't, click here to download the application manually.

After installation is finished, the application should open. Please click Join Audio Conference by Computer.

Make sure you have your assignment open on your computer before your conference, then click on Share Screen at the bottom of the window.

If you don’t see it, you may need to move your mouse to the bottom of the window, and a bar should pop up with the button on it.

Once you click it, a window should open to display the windows open on your computer. Select Desktop 1, then click on Share Screen at the bottom right of the window.

Your conference can now begin.
