The Writing Center is now IN-PERSON and ONLINE! Found in Blackboard, students can enter Blackboard Collaborate rooms with consultants during their scheduled shifts for an online Writing Center session.
Before you “drop in,” sign on to your Blackboard account, find “Writing Center” under “My Courses” and click on it. Then, using the navigation menu on the left side bar, first check our schedule for availability. The four main menu options you’ll need are circled and referenced below.
When you’re ready to meet with a peer writing consultant, from the left side menu, click on “Drop In to Collaborate.” Then, in the next screen, double-click on “Drop In Writing Center” to join with a tutor.
Either before you meet with a peer writing consultant, or once you’ve connected in Bbd Collaborate (the tool you’ll be using for the “Drop In Writing Center”), you can upload your writing using the tab on the left side menu from the main course navigation page, then follow directions on the screen. Bbd accepts Word and PDF files.
