WriteOnline

WriteOnline is an online word processing application for students. Users log on to the WriteOnline website, and can access word prediction features, text-to-speech, and other writing tools from any computer. Each student gets his or her personal online folders as part of the WriteOnline subscription, and they can save documents either online or to their own computer. Students' user preferences are automatically stored for them online, so the program starts up as they want it every time, on any computer. WriteOnline's document analysis tool for teachers allows teachers to view a complete history of the time spent on the document, all the sections of pasted text, and a full analysis of spelling errors and patterns.
