Students find help. You see progress.

Writing well is critical to college success. Over two or more years, students are asked to write in multiple genres and for a wide range of purposes, audiences, and courses. They need a resource that’s easy to use and that gets what they’re looking for. Enter Writer’s Help, a powerful online handbook with "the simplicity and usability of Google," according to one student user, but with the instruction that free online resources lack. Its trusted content, from the widely used Hacker Handbooks, helps students whether they are searching for writing advice on their own or as part of an assignment. Its tools, built around a smart search that recognizes nonexpert terminology, are as simple as they are innovative. Writer’s Help also saves teachers time by helping them assign pages and track progress, providing a window into student use and achievement. User-friendly help for college writers also means useful data for instructors and administrators—two benefits of Writer's Help 2.0.

"It's helpful not only for English courses but also for other courses that involve a lot of writing."
