Summary 'Mark My Words' is an MS Word add-on that makes online resources available to students during the writing process and as part of the feedback on their written assignments. It can significantly reduce instructors’ marking time while increasing the quality and quantity of the advice and corrections they provide to their students. It can be customized to support writing and feedback on any subject so that students can be supported in taking an autonomous, discovery-based approach to their own learning, and so that their instructors can give systematic, comprehensive and resource-rich comments as part of their feedback. This presentation will show how the program can specifically be used to promote effective, accurate and fluent composition in English.
