Online Writing Support
If visiting the Writing Center for a session is logistically impractical, we now offer online writing support for all Kean students, faculty, and staff.
We offer two types of online support:
ONLINE TUTORING: In this real time meeting, you share your work in one panel while chatting with the coach in a side panel. This type of support is designed for targeted feedback on work in the earlier stages of the writing process. Not recommended for formatting questions as all formatting is lost when the document is pasted into our interactive whiteboard.
E-TUTORING: For this asynchronous session, you simply attach your paper in the appointment dialogue box. A writing coach will review your work and provide feedback to guide your revisions. This essay review service is recommended for complete (or nearly complete) drafts. Generally, the writing coach will return the paper with comments within the following time-frame depending on demand:

Kean Learning Commons
The Learning Commons offers student support services designed to meet the academic and information needs of the student community. Its mission is to provide an integrated information delivery and learning support system that directly assists students with academic learning, completion of research-creative-and-scholarly activities, and their continuous professional development through programs, placements, and events. Through its programming, computer clusters on all three floors (printing is also available), and various student support and learning services, the Library serves as the intellectual and cultural center of the university and is dedicated to promoting lifelong learning.
Located in the heart of the Kean campus, the Learning Commons and its web site and online catalog house the Library’s print and online collections, with holdings of more than 177,961 volumes of books and access to more than 235,000 e-books. In addition, the Library subscribes to more than 56,748 electronic and print periodicals and provides access to more than 196,595 U.S. government online documents. A current validated Kean University photo ID is required to borrow materials from the library. A Kean Google-email account is required to access resources from off-campus. The Library can also request additional books and articles through the Interlibrary Loan system. Students may access the print book collections of other New Jersey academic libraries using the VALE Reciprocal Borrowing Program.
