Or, how I made research less of a chore for my students.
Bibliography We’ve all used this and sites like it for years. EasyBib now goes a step further. If the student is logged in, the bibliography is saved. Works cited page can be printed from here.
Registering The students will register and then sign in each time they use EasyBib. EasyBib requires an email address. If the student has no email, you can make one up. The student will need a “coupon code” which is given to you when you pay for the service.
Projects Students create projects. This allows them to save bibliographies, etc. The student can choose between MLA and APA. This can be changed later.
Notes! This is one of the best parts of the new EasyBib. Students can create their notecards online. Notecards can be grouped. Notecards can be color coded. Everything is saved.
Outline On the same page with the notecards, you will find a place to create an outline. The outline can be created by dragging and dropping the notecards.
Research. EasyBib now has a Google-like search place. It returns websites that have mostly been evaluated for authenticity.
Issues I’ve found EasyBib does not automatically log you out. This means the students’ accounts may still be there when the next student comes in. The first students research could be erased by the second student. EasyBib sometimes saves their work into a new project instead of the one they have already created.
