APA style ONLINE TUTORIAL!!

The Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) has recently launched an APA style online tutorial.

The tutorial, a collaboration between Gutman Library's Writing Services and the Learning Technologies Center (HGSE IT), is based on a highly regarded and well-attended workshop entitled, "APA EXPOSED : Everything You Always Wanted to Know About APA Format But Were Afraid to Ask!" Wendy Mages, an HGSE doctoral student, developed the content and taught the workshop for the past several years under the auspices of the Gutman Library Writing Services. In collaboration with Allison Harrington, Instructional Technology Designer for the Learning Technologies Center, Wendy Mages transferred the content of the in-person workshop to an online version.

The online APA tutorial has been designed to supplement the HGSE in-person workshop, but will serve any student well as a stand-alone resource. It provides... point-of-need assistance, and to facilitate student access to citation "how-to" information for APA format. Additionally, the tutorial has self-checks and additional resources for APA citation information.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that this resource is geared toward Harvard students and will at times refer to their library and campus resources. The tutorial, however, is very well done and useful to anyone using the APA citation style.

If you're interested, please take a look at the APA tutorial, which is currently undergoing beta testing.
