NoodleTools has announced that through a partnership with Pearson Education, its NoodleBib citation and notetaking program has been seamlessly integrated into the new version Pearson’s MyCompLab writing instruction environment. From the MyCompLab composing space, a student can click the "Cite sources" link in the Writer’s Toolkit to open NoodleBib, create a source list and notecards, and then import that work directly back into the MyCompLab editor. Users will find NoodleBib a slick fit with MyCompLab’s intuitive composing space and writing instruction resources, according to the announcement.
NoodleBib is a powerful and accurate citation and notetaking program where students get the support they need when they need it, the announcement states. Throughout the research process students are learning to investigate analytically, think critically, articulate ideas clearly and document their evidence accurately.
Pearson Education’s new MyCompLab facilitates writing instruction by integrating a composing space and eportfolio with proven resources and tools. In this application, students receive feedback within the context of their own writing—encouraging critical thinking and revision while honing their skills based on individual needs. Administrative features developed specifically for writing instruction bring instructors closer to their student writers, make managing assignments and evaluating papers more efficient, and save instructors time, according to Pearson Education.
