Eduify gives writers the tools to write better and research faster

     There seems to be no shortage of online document editors which allow students to write and share their work in the cloud. I have been using Google Docs with my students and find it to be a very convenient way for students to access and share their work. I came across a new site today called Eduify which caught my attention because of the built in tools which help the site to act as a writing coach for students

      According to the website,   Eduify is a new site in beta which provides writers with tools and services to become better writers and to get things done faster. students can begin with tutorials and examples to help get them started and the use the built in editor to start writing. The site has a built in way for students to automatically cite sources and generate a bibliography. It will also scan documents to suggest content that needs to be cited, helping students to avoid plagiarism. The documents can then be stored and shared online to make sure that nothing gets lost. 

      To get started, you will need to sign up for a beta invite and wait for your invitation. I did so today and will write more about my experiences with the site once I have had a chance to try it out.
