Macmillan Learning Acquires WriterKEY

Blog Post created by Nikki Jones Employee on Apr 6, 2016

We are bursting with excitement about the acquisition of WriterKey, a new tool in English Composition that will be an enormous boost to writing instruction. WriterKEY is an online application that supports instructors and their students as they manage the drafting, revising, peer review, and feedback process. WriterKEY provides a space for instructors to comment on student writing in written or verbal form.


Accompanying analytics show student progress and point to learning gaps. These powerful analytics enable our team to form partnerships with instructors and institutions to research best practices for student writing.


If you're in Houston for the 4Cs meeting, stop by the Macmillan Learning booth to see our team, meet WriterKey co-founder, Doug Silver, and to take WriterKey for a test drive!
