Student Success Center

OWL: The Online Writing Lab

The Online Writing Lab is a virtual writing center where you can meet with a tutor in a chat room and chat screen-to-screen about writing issues and writing projects. The OWL does not offer proofreading or editing services. Instead, we'll work directly with you to improve all aspects of your paper. Our appointments typically last forty-five minutes and are held in a Moodle chat room.

Online Tutoring Sessions are made by appointment only. To make an appointment, please contact the Student Success Center at 282-3662 between 8 AM and 7 PM, Monday-Thursday and Friday between 8AM and 5PM.

Have you already started (or finished!) some part of your writing project? If so, you can make the best use of your tutoring session by sending it to the tutor ahead of time. Please email it as a .docx or .rtf attachment to isuowl@isu.edu

During peak use hours, the system may run slowly. Please be patient and wait for the appropriate page to appear.

We're glad you found us. And so long as you're online, why not check out some of our many handouts?
