New Service!

E-Writing Support is now available for students! This online support service is new and available to students through Blackboard. It will appear in students’ Blackboard as a course titled “e-Writing Support”, but really it’s not a course. Students self-enrols and then they have access to submit their assignment to the writing specialist in Blackboard for comments. The students will get the same service from the writing specialist that they would in drop-in (meaning this is not a proofreading service), but with the option of an online medium. The e-support also includes links to the writing support webpage, the library’s APA/MLA guides page, and to the academic calendar for plagiarism definitions. Any questions about this service, or to speak with the writing specialist, email Taryn Fritz at TFritz@mhc.ab.ca
