This open education resource (OER) is designed to assist with reading and writing at the college level. The Excelsior Online Writing Lab (OWL) provides multimedia support to students preparing for college-level writing, as well as students making the transition out of introductory-level writing courses. The Online Reading Comprehension Lab (ORC) is the, first of its kind, online reading resource, which offers an abundance of support materials designed to help students develop college-level reading skills. The OWL site is OER and CC licensed and hundreds of activities are available that can be directly embedded in your own blog or course site.
This 60-minute webinar about the Excelsior Online Writing Lab (OWL) about Writing in the Disciplines was presented by Dr. Francesco (Frank) Crocco, Director of the Online Writing Lab at Excelsior College.
