Scrivener Rocks as a Course Design Tool

I mentioned in an earlier post how much I liked Scrivener as a writing tool.  As I used the program to write some learning goals for an upcoming course, I began to realize how powerful it is for facilitating the entire course development process.

Here’s a brief video demonstration which shows how I’m using it for course design as well as reflection and organization during the course.


While there’s only a Mac version available, Literature and Latte, the maker of Scrivener, has provided a list of supporting and alternative softwareWriteItNow is mentioned as an alternative for the PC, but I haven’t tried it yet.  Anybody out there have any experience with WriteItNow?

Scrivener – A great tool for writing

What’s this demo about?

I wholeheartedly agree with Bryan Bibb’s great overview of Scrivener . Scrivener is an amazing tool for writers and allows for easy organization of a wide variety of resources. This tool has transformed my writing process!

Additional Detail:

The software is only available for the Mac. 🙁

How long is it?

The overview video is fairly long but definitely worth the time to get a sense of what this software can do.
