Drafts are automatically synced and organized in a beautiful feed-style format. There are no documents or folders to create, no email attachments to lose, no file names to confuse. Built on DropBox, a leader in cloud-based file synchronization.
Students can invite anyone to review a draft with a single click. Reviewers do not need an Edswell account to access the draft. Students can compare drafts side-by-side using the “Get Changes” feature, which automatically highlights any edits or comments made by a reviewer.

From the dashboard, you can quickly 1) identify which students are falling behind, 2) add a school to a student’s list, or 3) email a student.
