The weekly chats will take place once a week and will last an hour. If you are unable to attend a chat, please make sure you read the chats saved with the weekly assignment document under "Get and post your assignment."

You need to upload your chat to be able to access the online classroom. What does it mean? Several days before the first class, the instructor will send you an email with a link to the classroom:

1) Click on the link (, which will take you to the login page for the classroom.

2) As you do not yet have a password, click on “Click here if you cannot remember your password.”

3) You will be prompted to enter your email address. Enter your email address and hit “Submit”.

4) You will receive an email from “Writers Studio” with a URL address. Click on the link. You will be taken to a page, which displays your email address and prompts you to enter a new password. Click on “Submit,” once you have entered a new password and confirmed the password by re-typing it.

5) Once you have set-up a password, go back to the email you were initially sent and click on the URL in step 1 ( You will notice you have been assigned a temporary user name.

6) To change your user name, click on "Update Info" near the top of the page. You will be able to select a Login Id, change your email id if necessary, and add your first, middle and last name and a nickname.

You can now use the link to access the classroom using the user name and password you have set-up. Only you, the teacher and your colleagues will have access to the classroom.
