How to Begin an E-Session

Step 1:

First, refer to How an E-Session Works.
Then, use Google Chrome** to log into your nyack email.** Make sure to log out of all other emails in that browser.

**You MUST use Google Chrome to avoid technical difficulties with other browsers.
**You MUST use your nyack email because our Google Hangouts call only works with your @nyack.edu.
 


 

Step 2:

Use your nyack email to send the following to thewritingcenter@nyack.edu:

  • Your Draft, if you have any, as a MS Word attachment, NOT a PDF.
  • Your Assignment Detail, i.e. your assignment instructions in the professor’s exact words.

Please email the above at least 10 minutes before your e-session, or as early as possible – for example, the morning of or the day before your e-session.

 


 

Step 3:

  • After doing step 2, your nyack email inbox will receive an email saying “Invitation to edit” as shown below.
  • You will receive this invitation email only at the time of your e-session.

  • Open the invitation email and select “Open in Docs.”
  • Google Docs allow both student and consultant to simultaneously make & save changes to the student’s draft.
