Further, student experience of these resources has often been overlooked. In this workshop, we explore how to integrate e-platforms into teaching academic writing to enhance positive student experience. We demonstrate a design of an existing course in academic writing at Malmö University, Sweden, which currently enrolls approximately 300 students per term. The distinctive feature of this course is the very tight integration of the e-platform Mycomplab (http://www.mycomplab.com) and teaching material. We evaluate critically empirical data pertaining to student experience of i. the e-platform interface, ii. the link between the e-platform and the teaching material, iii. the different levels and forms of feedback provided through the e-platform, and iv. the e-platform’s impact on learning. Participants of this workshop can test various tasks to emulate student experience of the e-platform. Furthermore, we welcome participants to contribute and discuss other e-platform solutions to the above issues. This workshop aims to provide a clearer understanding of the potential of e-platforms to enhance positive student experience, and it allows participants to gain an overview of different e-platform solutions available and currently in use in academic writing courses. From this workshop, we intend to establish a forum for discussing use of e-platforms in academic writing.
