Online Learners Library Guide: Online Writing Lab

Information for students who take classes online

What is the Online Writing Lab?

The University's Writing Lab offers an online writing lab, "a service that allows UWF students to submit their papers online via Canvas and retrieve the feedback at a later time. An OWL staff member reads each electronic submission, makes comments and suggestions using Microsoft Word, and then uploads the feedback copy to the student."

The service helps students locate errors in grammar, spelling, word usage, punctuation, capitalization, and sentence structure.
