Essay tool
What about if you as a teacher had a task where your learners should write an essay? To correct these essays would take very much of your time, the Essay tool diminishing your workload dramatically.

In the essay tool, the author defines a set of keywords that represent crucial aspects of a topic. These keywords are matched against a text that students have composed and can be used to immediately provide feedback – either suggesting revising certain topic details if a keyword is missing or, confirming the student’s ideas if the text contains a keyword. The feature includes several case sensitive feedback options and behavioural settings, as well as it also includes ignoring minor spelling mistakes. Please try it out on the next page in a simplified task to show as an example.
