A Rhetorical Evaluation of OWLs


OWLs: Who Gives a Hoot?

When you think of OWLs, you most likely think of big-eyed birds in trees. But when the Rhetoric class at the University of Nebraska at Omaha thinks of OWLs, they think of Online Writing Labs. Online Writing Labs give a new twist to the conventional writing center. Access to answers about grammar and help with fluency in a composition is now right at your fingertips. This website reviews the effectiveness of ten OWLs, the ease of their use, and the additional features that make them unique.
