Zoom is a free, user-friendly platform for video and audio conferencing. IVCC students with a webcam and microphone can talk face-to-face with a tutor, or can skip the webcam and chat with audio only. The tutor can also screenshare with you, so that we can look at and discuss your work together.
Appointments for videoconferences should be made by calling 815.224.0637 or by using the special request form. We will begin taking requests for Zoom conferences on Jan. 21, 2019.
IVCC students may schedule a videoconference or audio consultation with a Writing Center tutor during the following hours:
Monday 9-12; 2:30-4:30
Wednesday 9-11; 2:30-4
Before your scheduled appointment time, please email a copy of any writing you have completed thus far as a Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org. (A copy of the assignment sheet can be quite helpful, so feel free to attach that, too.)
Participants can click here to visit the virtual meeting room. You will need to download the Zoom software before joining the meeting room for the first time. The virtual meeting room is NOT monitored during times other than those posted above, and is monitored ONLY for scheduled appointments. Contact us another way to get in touch with a tutor right away!
