Quiet Write

Quiet Write is an online workspace where students can write in a safe online forum.  I believe the best part is that students can work in environment without distractions.  There is nothing flashy and the controls disappear as you write.

When you are finished writing you have the option to publish with a unique URL.  Now, here comes the great part.  You have the option to allow responses to your writings.  You will be able to add your comments when students allow the response option and share the URL with you.  Students also have the option to "unpublish" after you have shared your comments.

Sample:

In order for a student to publish, an account is needed, however, the process is very quick and clean.  Another bonus...it automatically saves!  I believe this is another helpful tool in our tech tool belts.
