About the Course

Developed by Stanford's Center for the Study of Language and Information, this course helps students develop reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. Using innovative writing analysis technology, capable of accurately identifying hundreds of errors in grammar and word choice, students receive error-specific feedback on sentence and paragraph composition—something no other Language Arts course can offer. This course is available for laptop, desktop, and mobile tablet devices.
