Projecting the live feed of comments allowed me to get out of students’ way while still reminding them that their work is public in our class community.

Eli provided a space so that I could be there to guide my online students through the process instead of “sending them away to write.”

Regina Chanel Rodriguez, West Texas A&M University

We used peer review as a way to facilitate class discussion. We got to see where everyone else was, those who were doing better and worse.

If my students are only getting feedback from me, they’re not getting enough.

Chris Sloan (@csloan), Judge Memorial High School

I truly believe that, if Eli is used well, anyone can grow as a writer.
