“With the growing number of schools and universities closing due to COVID-19, Ecree recognizes the critical need for students to continue their education from home,” said Jamey heit, PhD, co-founder and CEO of Ecree. “Learning doesn’t stop when students leave the classroom and educators need to make quick decisions to support our communities. Along with midterm homework and end of year tests to consider, this made our decision to provide open access to Ecree easy. “
Founded in 2014 by educators looking for a better way to teach students how to write, Ecree uses rubric-based algorithms to provide continuous writing feedback on any topic, in real time, during that the student writes. With its simple and easy-to-use design, students can start their essay directly in the software or download a file. In seconds, Ecree provides constructive, color-coded feedback on what is well written and what needs revision. The student determines how much time they want to spend perfecting the writing and can save the draft to continue at a later date.
