There are several options that online students can use to get writing help from the Online Writing Center (OWC).
You can get written feedback by submitting your paper to the OWC through your Blackboard course. Once you've submitted your paper, you can access written feedback from the OWC using the same link within about 24 hours.
Finally, the OWC's website has a number of writing resources you can use and their YouTube channel provides a series of videos on topics like citing sources, revising and editing, writing theses, annotated bibliographies, and more.
