Help your students succeed with WHO


Writing Help Online (WHO) is an online, interactive writing resource developed here at SMU that uses active learning and scaffolding theories to help students develop academic writing skills. 

Faculty members can incorporate writing instruction into their curriculum by adding WHO guides to their courses, or may recommend this free program to students for independent study. Writing Centre & Academic Communications staff can also customize WHO guides with content specific to a discipline or course.
