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

Two weeks into my course I had to completely revamp my weekly plan once I realized what Eli Review was capable of. Be willing to let go and dive in.

John Holland (@hollandsf), San Francisco State 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.

Rebecca Zantjer (@rebeccazantjer), Michigan State University

I was able to chart engagement and direct my attention to students who weren’t engaged to help them through whatever roadblock was in their way.

Lisa Schanhals (@lschanhals), Spring Lake High School

In learning how to give effective, useful feedback, students do substantive, fundamental learning about writing that will make them better writers.
