This is everything that I try to teach students and then some in terms of writing a summary and integrating sources.
The research tutorials address the concepts and skills that students need to learn, and I love the idea that examples and exercises would take students further into the site.
The project covers all of the major areas that I stress in composition classes. I am particularly impressed with the progression described in the first ten research tutorials, since this very closely mirrors the areas that I stress in my classes.
I was delightfully surprised by the quality of scholarly resources available in the Questia site. Just in the literature portion alone, there are numerous subdivisions of literary types, well-organized by culture, theme, genre, and theory. Totally impressive. I believe my students would find this site incredibly valuable to their research–as would I.
First, the added value of having such a wide range of academically sound sources available reduces students’ tendencies to rely on low quality information. Second, the ability to interact with and annotate a source on screen will enable students to create accurate and effective notes. The citation tools are exemplary, ensuring accuracy and flexibility in citing source material.
The thousands of research topics is most impressive; that gives students a wide range of potential writing subjects. The supplemental material (texts, magazines, etc.) provides a wealth of material for support.
The quote and citation functions take out a lot of the mystery of these tasks for students, allowing them to focus on more important aspects of the research and writing projects, like contextualizing the sources and supporting their arguments. The bibliography works well, too.
