I really like this website. This website is a helpful source for high school and college students. The website is aimed for college students, but I think high school students could benefit from it too. I like how it gives a lot of detail and examples of writing. It is a quick and easy source to look up key terms of writing.

Technical Remarks:

This website is very user friendly. It is arranged in a well organized way. The set up makes it easy to find different topics.

I spent about ten minutes on this site. I find this web site attractive. the
content is very engaging and practical. This site has information for students
who have a problem with grammar, essay construction, paper presentation and
thesis writing.
It has the potential for enhancing teaching and learning if appropriately used.
It is also very easy to navigate.

Technical Remarks:

There is no complicated technical requirements. Accessing all areas is easy

Good site for reviewing writing basics with interactive exercises for
reinforcement. The Essay Writing and Research Room sections provide practice
advice on academic writing. The entire writing process from developing the
thesis idea, researching, writing and revision are discussed and illustrated.

College students are the target audience for this site. I spent about an hour
at the site checking out the links and trying the interactive exercises. The
site is a great resource for teachers and students in any discipline where
writing is required.

Technical Remarks:

The site is intuitive to use. The reader can quickly go to topics of interest
from menu links or links within a topic page. Interactive exercises provide
immediate feedback.
