Welcome to Write It Again

Happy Welcome Character Pose

Hello, and welcome to the Write It Again learning module. I am Taylor, your Write It Again guide.

As I explain below, Write It Again is here to help YOU when you’re trying to use research for an assignment. We’ll teach you how to grab the research ideas you want to use, and put them into your own work, without plagiarizing.

If you’re not sure when you might use these skills, click “Examples” on the navigation bar above for ideas.

For now though, why not get started by looking at the videos below. They’ll explain the main ideas in this module.

Once you’ve viewed the videos, you’re ready to hit “Practice”.
