Creative Online Writing (COW) is a online writing tool for students. It provides prompts, vocabulary, and feedback to students as they write their responses and earn points to customize an avatar within the program. Teachers view student work and organize students in groups. The program is available at a per student rate.
Students begin using COW by entering their teacher-given student code to log in. Once logged in, students select a prompt and begin writing. COW provides “bonus” vocabulary to spark student creative writing. Once students have completed answering the prompt, COW reviews the work and provides qualitative feedback to the students. Students have the option to save and share their work for others in their class to read. For each completed prompt or story, students receive virtual Alieo credits which they can use to build a personalized Alieo avatar for their profile.
From their teacher dashboard, teachers can organize students into specific groups based off of desired prompt assignments and view shared student work.
COW is free for teachers with 15 or less students. For classrooms with 30 students, subscriptions cost $99.00 annually, and $3.30 for every extra student. Inquiries about classroom discounts and annual license subscriptions can be made on the website.
