Writing Center Asynchronous/Synchronous Online Feedback: The Relationship between E-feedback and Its Impact on Student Satisfaction, Learning and Textual Revision (2018)

Abstract

This study investigates connections between asynchronous online feedback from writing center (WC) tutors and revision by non-native speakers (NNS). The chapter specifically examines work by students who speak English as a foreign language (EFL) at an American university in Greece. Results indicate the effects of online tutoring are positive. However, e-feedback is sometimes ineffective due to difficulty understanding and applying tutor comments. Further development of quality e-feedback is needed, and a combination of online and onsite visits may yield enhanced results.
