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?


  1. Outstanding screencast on one of my favorite Mac tools.

  2. Thanks heaps for this demo. I downloaded a trial copy of Scrivener today and imported files for an eight-part workbook. Your examples gave me additional ideas for how to integrate class design with the refinement of the workbook.
