Discussion for Wordsmyth
Barb Dougherty (Faculty)
I explored the website and did not like the ads included. However I did the exercise and found it a great learning experience. When I went to the website listed to return my work the webpage address was not listed. Also the directions for this should be more methodical. The exercise can be done with any dictionary and this should at least be noted.
The website for return of work does not function.
The instructions are not easy to follow, they are not specific enough.

than an hour browsing all the links but found the word search capability the
most useful for students.
The definitions and list of synonyms provided for words typed into the search
box are accessible for students.
I use this site with online students to encourage them to look up the meanings
of words they encounter in literature that they read while engaged in a
composition and literature course.
I expect them to gain some facility and familiarity with this online
dictionary/thesaurus and to use the site often to define words they encounter in
literature to enhance their understanding of what they read.
First timer users will have no problem navigating this site.
