3 Easy Steps to Success
Learn how to develop your writing skills using Konspectus.
Make sure you read and understand the assignment.
STEP 1: START A NEW PAPER - OUTLINE
Enter the details of your assignment – the title, subject, paper type and format, due date, etc. With complete information Konspectus will help monitor the word, page and reference counts, and will load the paper format required. Konspectus will also monitor due dates to prioritize your assignments.
The paper type you select on this page will load suggested outline choices for your review, before you start writing.
You can review and choose other suggested outlines by selecting the paper type on the outline bar and scroll through Konspectus’ outline database.
Outlines in the software are representative samples only and Konspectus recommends that you modify an existing outline or create your own to meet the unique requirements of your assignment.
At this stage, you can start your research, record and organize your notes and references by using the Konspectus Assistant.
STEP 2: WRITE A PAPER - DRAFT
The title of your paper will appear in the middle of the tool bar.
Your outline will appear on the left side of the screen. The Editor pane provides prompts in a text box which becomes the writing space. This box corresponds to the outline section about which you are writing. As you advance from section to section in your outline, the writing space will move accordingly.
Your writing space will always be active with easy access to your Outline or the Konspectus Assistant using the side navigation.
Manage your notes and references in the Assistant pane. You can write and organize notes and attach them to the appropriate Outline section. The Konspectus Editor will display an icon to indicate when a note is present in any given section.
Your work will be automatically saved in Konspectus.
STEP 3: FINALIZE A PAPER - REVIEW
A final checklist appears as the review stage.
Read your paper out loud and follow the list before submitting your assignment.
You can manage your writing assignments in your personal library and sort papers by the due date, instructor, subject or paper.
