Virtual Advising Tips


  • Practice, practice, practice! – Practice with friends or colleagues before you “go-live.”
  • Schedule the appointment in advance
  • Prepare as much as you can before your virtual appointment
  • Give yourself at least an hour per appointment when starting out
  • Pass the ball!  Walk the students through accessing the resources themselves
  • Share your desktop when needed
  • Be prepared for a technology failure!  Be “quick on your feet” to trouble shoot and provide an alternative solution either for yourself or the student
  • If you or the student cannot connect audio, use your land line or cell phone to communicate.
