The Writing Kit is a site developed by Whitegrouse Instructional Media, a San Diego-based eLearning development company that designs training for corporate and higher education clients. There are many excellent web sites that already provide writing instruction, but we believe our site offers several unique features.
Created by an editor and a former college English teacher, the Writing Kit uses Flash movies to present concepts dynamically and to provide plenty of opportunity for varied interactive practice and instant feedback. As instructional designers we know that audio is a valuable feature for some types of learners, so we've included that too.
The Writing Kit is free for anyone to use, but we do ask that companies and institutions wanting to link to our site please let us know, using the form on the Contact Us page.
Scope of the project
This is an ongoing project. The first few tutorials will cover aspects of punctuation, but over time we will expand to cover common grammar problems and organization in writing.
Who is the intended audience for this web site? Primarily we hope it will be useful for college students and other adult learners who want to polish their writing.
