Would you like to make ONLINE APPOINTMENTS at the UK Writing Center?
First, if you have not registered as a new client at the UK Writing Center within the last 9 months, go to uky.mywconline.com and click on the “Register as a new client” link.
After you have registered, log on to uky.mywconline.com using your email address and the password you created when you registered.
Once you have logged on, the UK Writing Center schedule will open in a new window.
On the Writing Center schedule, in the column to the far left, look at the consultant names and the text below each name. All consultants are available for Face-to-Face consultations, but only some consultants are available for Online consultations.
First, identify a consultant who offers Online consultations.
Then, along that consultant’s row, locate an open appointment time (WHITE SPACES are OPEN APPOINTMENT SLOTS), and click on an available time (that fits your schedule, of course) to open the appointment window.
When the appointment window opens to allow you to register for the appointment:
Notice the “Meet online?” question and the pull-down menu answers (“No, Meet Face-to-Face,” OR “Yes, Meet Online”).
Select “Yes, Meet Online.”
Complete the appointment registration form.
Save the appointment (look for the button at the bottom of the form).
Next, a few minutes before the start time of your scheduled “Meet Online” appointment time:
Log in to uky.mywconline.com
When the UK Writing Center schedule opens:
Click on your appointment.
When your appointment window opens:
Click on the “Start or Join Online Consultation” link (in red) to open your online meeting window.
When the meeting window opens, upload your document.
Once you have uploaded your document, you can chat with your consultant (on the right-hand side of the screen), and both you and the consultant can mark text in your document.
The consultant can type directly onto the document (to enter comments such as “Look at this paragraph”).
(Your typing and the consultant’s typing are color-coded.)
Both you and the consultant can save the document at any point, return to the session later by clicking on the appointment link, and look through a record of the work completed during the online session.
Note: All face-to-face and online sessions last 45 minutes. The sessions start on the hour and end at the 45-minute mark.
Please let us know if you have questions about this process. Contact Judy Gatton Prats, UK Writing Center Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
