Writing Center Moves All Appointment Online

The Writing Center appointments is offering online consultations in place of our typical face-to-face sessions for the remainder of the spring semester. Online appointments can be scheduled by logging into arcadia.mywconline.com. Choose the "F2F-Landman Library (Temp. Online)" schedule when logging in. Sessions are by appointment only and must be scheduled at least three hours in advance. 

Programs that use our existing online schedule will experience no change in process and should continue to use the schedule and instructions typically provided to them.

Got five minutes? Watch this video about how easy it is to schedule and join an online appointment.

To access online sessions:

  • Log in to arcadia.mywconline.com, and click on the designated appointment about 5-10 minutes before the session begins.
  • In the appointment window, click "Start or Join Online Consultation” to be taken to the online consulting space.
  • See the brief instructional video for more guidance on scheduling an online session and/or setting up an account:

Helpful Tips:

  • A webcam, microphone and a broadband connection allows us to conduct sessions through videoconference. However, these are not required in order to have an online session; sessions can be conducted through chat using the system, and by phone or email, if necessary.
  • If you are working with a draft, you can upload the draft directly to the system once you’ve joined the session. You can also attach your draft to an appointment in advance, if you’d prefer (see instructional video above for details).
  • Your consultant can still work with you on brainstorming or pre-writing (generating ideas, understanding the assignment) in an online session, in addition to helping you make ideas clearer, grammar, organization, etc. Just be sure to indicate this when scheduling your appointment.

If you experience login problems and/or issues with the online system, please email writingcenter@arcadia.edu, and someone will respond to you as soon as possible.
