Engage and empower your students to build a professional presence online

Coventry.Domains allows educators to assign digital, web-based work for their students including blog posts, portfolio pieces and peer feedback.

It’s also a great tool for students to develop key digital skills for their careers.

Better engagement

Students feel more engaged when writing for their peers or for a potential audience on the web.

Information Literacy

Research shows that students writing articles for the web or for Wikipeida are better able to determine the validity of sources of information online.

Digital Citizenship

Web publishing helps students to become more aware of their online presence, evaluate materials they find online and feel more confident in collaborating with others online.

Open Knowledge

Web publishing allows students to contribute to a growing body of Open Education Resources. It’s also possible for students to publish in a closed community for those who are uncomfortable sharing their work publicly.
Developing Students

Set online assignments and open up global horizons for your students

Research suggests that students are more engaged, diligent, and information-literate when writing for the web vs writing for their educator. By adapting your assignments to blogging and portfolio work, you can encourage students to develop a professional preence online as well as become better digital citizens.
