Eli triples, quadruples the amount of feedback that any writer in the class can get.

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.

I build Eli Review into the logic of the assignment sequences so that giving feedback and using it to revise becomes second nature.

Scott Rogers (@scottlorgers), Pacific Lutheran University

Eli helped me guide students into meaningful practice. They took more ownership of the content and their own skill development.

Jo Lien, North Idaho College

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